AI image generation technology continues to improve – though it’s still not great at dealing with things like text and logos. While the results of ThomasDotCodes’ breakfast cereal experiment are questionable, we enjoyed watching the weird stuff styleGAN2 came up with when trained with 700 images of cereal boxes.
(Photosensitivity Warning) DoodleChaos loves to make videos that sync up with music. He created this incredibly psychedelic video for the appropriately named Bliss on Mushrooms using AI image-generating tools like Dall-E 2 and Stable Diffusion. Our favorite part was the cars and engines starting around 6:43.
Art meets science in Vadim Epstein’s trippy digital compositions. Ghosts is an experimental short film that explores complexity emergence from AI feedback loops. It makes use of the StarGAN2 neural network to morph between machine-generated images. Sound by Alexander Kopeikin and Fractal Heads.
Artist Mike Pelletier’s experimental short film is an incredibly trippy visual created by tossing together a bunch of digital human models, removing their skeletal structures, and then dipping them in virtual paint. If it sounds weird, that’s because it is. We can’t help but think of the part of Terminator 2 where the T-1000 melts.
If you think Bob Ross should always be painting happy little trees, you might want to look away from Alexander Reben’s horrifying clip, in which they ran footage from The Joy of Painting through deep-learning audio and video processing software. The brown acid is bad.
Ian Pons Jewell’s awesome bad trip music video perfectly matches the imagery with the deep down beats of Valentino Khan’s dance floor banger, as faces are contorted to the beat of the music. And then there’s the chick with the tentacle eyeballs. Your nightmares miss you.
