Artificial intelligence introduced to @haedre's artwork - insanity results :) Join me on a journey to some alien landscapes. This is Alien Art. This is what happens when you task an artificial intelligence to emulate the style of one of Steem's finest artists. @haedre has an unusual vision which is expressed in his art, an infusion of flesh into robotics, a transmutation of man to machine and back again.

My original photograph of the Willamette River
Every piece of art in this post started as the above macro photography of water ripples.
Hypterion II (The union) - art by @haedre, used with permission
I introduced my neural network collaborator over at the Deep Dream Generator to my friend @haedre, in the form of this cropped section of @haedre's painting Hypterion II (The union) (left). I tasked the AI to recreate the water ripples in the style of @haedre. What follows is a computer's best attempts at impersonating @haedre drawing water ripples in his inimitable crazy alien biotech style.
First run, rotated and mirrored
I ran the original output from the Deep Dream Generator back through on itself several times, using the same style image from @haedre's artwork each time. After several trips to dreamland and back, I mirrored the results and cropped out a section that became the new base image for the remaining abstractions in the rest of the post:
@haedre Abstraction Base
I used the above base image with quite a few different style images on trips through the Deep Dream Generator, and layered the results in PhotoShop. Until we figure out faster-than-light travel, PhotoShop and Deep Dream are a wonderful alternative route to alien landscapes :)
