Visualization of an antitwister mechanism - a way of connecting a flexible link between two objects, one of which is rotating with respect to the other, in a way that prevents the link from becoming twisted.
Scaling and dropping a twist deformation through a stack of transparent planes.
Using geometric algebra ideas (specifically the even subalgebra of Cl3,1) to potentially help visualize the entanglement of qubits for quantum circuits. The pulling along an axis represents a Lorentz boost, while spinning around the axis are rotations.

In the past 2 years, AIs have been developed that can take a string of text and generate a corresponding image. New models and techniques are being released constantly. An open source community has formed, initiated by the work of Ryan Murdock (@advadnoun) and Katherine Crowson (@RiversHaveWings) (reference here). Just as 2 Cartesian coordinates can uniquely describe a point on a plane, or 3 coordinates can describe a point in real space, we can use many-dimensional coordinates to uniquely describe a whole image, or the semantic content of a text string. By training an AI model on millions of pairs of images and captions, we can discover a space and a mapping where similar images cluster close together, and the text string "Baroque Autumn" maps to the same region as a picture of a "Baroque Autumn". In this latent space, proximity scores between text and image can be calculated, and used to guide the generation of an image to match a new text prompt given by the human.

By taking an image generated from this technique, warping it, and using it as an input for the next frame, we can generate animations.
If the prompts used are changed on each frame, the image can evolve.

For each season, I also prompted a kigo for that season, maybe you can guess which ones I used.
Not quite a perfect loop yet, but I'm getting closer.@images_ai pic.twitter.com/YQ9U0jbEXW
And if we scroll the original image in to the right side of the frame as it leaves, we can approximate a loop.
In this piece (released to coincide with this conference), parallax is achieved by scrolling independent generated layers at different speeds, a technique commonly used in 2D side-scrolling video games. The endless looping is achieved by inpainting the seams so that they match up, locating a point in the space of possible images that tiles seamlessly. The result is an animation where the last frame perfectly approaches the first frame.

Hyperspectives is a a collection of experiments with non-euclidean perspectives, related to moebius transformations and interesting mappings of 3d geometry. The goal is to offer unique perspectives on various aspects of what it means to be a creature living in space and to learn about math in the process. The hyperhorse, in particular, is inverse stereographically projected onto the hypersphere, rotated, and projected back again. Click on the image to access the original interactive art, where you can move the camera, change rotation speed and pause the horse displacement.
