Trippy Meta Video of the Day: Google’s Acid Trip Generator Analyzes Acid Trip Scene in ‘Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas’

fearandloathing-deepdream

Deep Dream, Google’s artificial neural network analyzes and builds on patterns in video or images, and can be programmed to look for specific things. For instance the network can be programmed to look for animals and faces, and if a cloud in a video clip looks like vaguely a bird, the network will exaggerate this detail with each pass. Someone had the bright idea of having Deep Dream analyze an acid trip scene from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and the results are kinda terrifying.

Watch Deep Dream’s nightmarish version of the film below.

Ryan Humphrey and James Harvey’s fantastic Bartkira project just gets bigger and better as time goes on. Their labour of love, to have artists all over the world re-create Akira using Simpsons characters, is one of my favourite crowd-sourced projects ever! You can see a map here of all the contributing artists’ locations.

Kaitlin Sullivan organized a group of over 50 artists to create a trailer for the animated version of Bartkira and made it look like something that would have appeared on an old Bartman VHS. The results are amazing. Watch the Bartkira trailer below.
