Deep Dive


Deep Dive

 I saw this mind-bending animation on r/imaginarylandscapes & thought it was pretty crazy.


It was made using Deep Dream neural network software "that uses a convolutional neural network to find and enhance patterns in images via algorithmic pareidolia, thus creating a dream-like psychedelic appearance in the deliberately over-processed images."

I've used similar software to create some images that I've posted here.

Deep Dream Images

The process for creating this imagery is definitely analogous to the bizarre visual experiences present in altered states and dreams. The brain is a pattern-recognition machine, and this software uses computers to simulate the unfiltered feedback loops that result in these kinds of hallucinations in the mind's eye.
