Deep Dream Photos

This year is proving to be a difficult one and I’ve had little or no time to write or make anything. I did, however, manage to spend an hour yesterday altering some images with ‘Deep Dream’.

This is an experimental piece of code released by Google which attempts to find patterns in images (based on analysing pictures from Google images), then alters the pictures to make them match the patterns it thinks it found. The images can be bizarre and trippy or just look like paintings. Often it just adds a lot of dog faces – apparently this is the result of analysing too many photos of dogs. Right now it looks amazing, but in a few months everyone is going to be bored of it – so better post these now rather than then.

Here are the pictures, and here is the link if you want to make any for yourself.

    I wondered why it had given me a dog’s face, then I read your explanation. Far out, trippy
