Overview

ARTIFICIAL_DREAMS is an exploration of how Artificial Intelligence models visualize the world. Most of these models have been trained on data representing how humans visualize the world through art, photographs, and other visual artifacts we’ve created throughout history. By exploring their perspectives, we’re indirectly exploring our own perspectives - just in representations that never came to pass.

We can say that a goal or outcome that has not been realized is an aspiration, a DREAM. We can say that an entity that is not organic is ARTIFICIAL. Thus we create ARTIFICIAL_DREAMS.

Ultimately I didn’t feel that my own implementation would give me an unfair advantage over existing public offerings so I decided to use those.

A few I’ve been playing with:
