Neural Fractal

Neural artistic style transfer applied to a computer animated fractal.

Animation created using artificial intelligence and deep learning in a technique called ‘artistic style transfer’.

Neural models of human visual perception are used to transfer the visual style of a painting or photograph onto another image.

In this video I’m taking visual styles such as computer fractals, abstract photography, sci fi art and HD wallpapers and transferring them onto repeating GIF loops – which are originally just simple 3D animations with no texture or color.

Everything was rendered from open source code in Google’s Colab using their GPU runtime support. GPU processing power is an essential requirement in all deep learning projects.

Artistic style transfer part of an exciting new branch of AI based art, in what could tentatively be called ‘neuralism’.

My 360 VR film ‘Another World’ is now available on Vimeo 360 – As usual it works with every browser except Safari.  Come on Apple!

The landscapes in the film were all procedurally generated from algorithms, using OpenGL GLSL shaders – all computed on the graphics card GPU.

 

 

A tribute concert by Tangerine Dream for founding member Edgar Froese, performed at the Philharmony Szczecin, Poland in 2016.
They performed perfectly to my ‘Temples’ film and particle animations ‘Particle Man’ and ‘Star Girl’.
It’s a compilation from rushes and excerpts from one camera, so there are some gaps and incomplete parts.

What a thrill and an honour 🙂
