If there is one thing that I have learned, it is that imaging neural networks can produce some creepy results. But sometimes the results can be beautiful too. Chris Rodley used a deep learning algorithm to merge a book of dinosaurs with a book of flower paintings. The results are astounding and it is actually something approaching fine art.
Using the Deepart.io algorithm offers different results from Google’s Deep Dream, since it applies features of an artist’s visual style to another image. This keeps recognizable details and uses them to rebuild the target image from scratch.
So what you get are dinosaurs made out of flowers, fruit, tall ships, and other stuff. Basically he is creating fine art mashups. If you want prints to hang on your wall, you can reach out to Chris on his website.
