Now that the YSW ferry pier is bike-free, a lot of new, weird wildlife seems to be moving in...

What would happen to a crab photo (by David K. Clarke) if run iteratively thru this inceptionistic neural network?

Or an uncropped photo, generating a whole lot of different critters, all hiding under the sand before??

Whoaah, these images get spookier the closer it's getting to midnight! Another crab by David K. Clarke spawning so many weird creatures...
These might invade my dreams tonight...

Weird happenings at the now bike-free YSW Ferry Pier, giant monsters guarding the pier, ready to devour every bike parked there (and the owner for dessert)...

And here's a demo why you should NOT dare to unleash this neural net on human faces:

Looking down from my rooftop these days, weird stuff seems to be going on, but only the Deep Dream Generator reveals what I couldn't see before:

Some shadows I photographed outside The Island Bar,
after a number of iterations of the Deep Dream Generator.

But where did these creatures emerge from (Google's neural net, early glimpses of AI) and what's happened to the two dogs in the picture!
Don't use this on pictures of living creatures, especially not on people and companion animals!

I'll never look at a Lamma blue sky from my rooftop the same way again...

Just 12 iterations of my smartphone clip-on fisheye lens picture, feeding the resulting picture back into the neural net...

Our pet geckoes might love the result.

What happens when I apply this process to an already beautifully frightening image?
Let me try...

Trying a different more innocuous image, from last night.

I don't remember toads being on the ingredients list. I might not have another pizza in a long time and I forgot to have lunch while Photoshopping this image...

35 years of doing computerised "visual effects" as an occasional hobby.
But it's been several years since my last computer art solo exhibitions in town/on Lamma,
Thinking of doing another one, no profits, but loads of fun...
