Johan Nordberg creates two stunningly beautiful music videos for IngMob using Google’s DeepDream.
The first, for “New Calm” uses buildings as the basis for its trippy visuals, while “Kundaleen” uses animals.
Both videos started out as just one frame of random noise. “Basically I ask the network ‘Hey, what do you see in this image? Please respond with painting,’ and keep repeating that with every painting the network gives me, making the details more pronounced each time,” Nordberg tells The Creators Project. “The zoom effect is created by scaling the paintings up a little bit before giving them back, letting the network fill in the details that were lost.”
Watch them both below.
