Assimilation Video

An experimental video combining elements of AI generated art with original art, digital and stop motion animation. Most of the backgrounds and some of the objects were created by online AI art tool Midjourney. After a few experiments generating various scenes I decided to incorporate them in an animation exploring the role of AI in our near future. I believe the technique has parallels in surrealist techniques of automatic art, frottage and dreamwork etc. The AI is training itself on a vast pool of images already created by humans, almost like a subconcious resevoir which we direct the ‘AI’ to

The Visitors – Night Water

An animation inspired by a view across the moonlit bay one evening, the atmosphere was heavy with the sense of others, I sketched out the night water and started imagining what it was that was coming towards us.. this is the result. Digital sketches of the town and surroundings create the backdrop for this flight of fancy.

Camera Projection Experiment

This is n experimental movie clip showing a technique called ‘Camera Projection’. The technique creates a seemingly 3D scene using a 2D photo. Camera Projection works by using a light in an After Effects composition to shine through an image layer, projecting the pixels in the image onto a 3D surface. You can then animate a camera around the surface and create the impression of depth and perspective, all derived from a single, flat photo.
