Twin Tendrils / 2020
Ai Data - Videoart


            Twin Tendrils shows the slow-moving metamorphosis of two features, set side-by-side. To create these visuals, I fed to my neural network countless images of fireworks and lightning taken from different parts of the world, allowing the AI to understand the difference between the dark and the light and eventually produce its own forms, slowed down by 175%. The sound has been created using the same process, where synthetized Bells are played over the transformations, heightening the meditative, introspective quality.
The figures in Twin Tendrils appear less like apparitions of fire and electricity played in slow-motion and more like dancing biological life forms recorded in time lapse.
