Why Is A Raven Like A Writing Desk?: Alice In Wonderland Tea Party Scene Edited In The Styles Of Famous Artists

September 23, 2015


This is a video of the Alice In Wonderland tea party scene edited using code that transfers aspects of a still image to moving pictures. In this case, using famous paintings from 17 different artists to give the scene a real sense of an artist's particular painting. The artists included are, in this order, drumroll please. No? Well at least fire a gun in the air or something, shit:

Pablo Picasso

Georgia O'Keeffe
S.H. Raza
Frida Kahlo
Vincent van Gogh
Saloua Raouda Choucair
Lee Krasner
Sol Lewitt
Wu Guanzhong
Elaine de Kooning
Ibrahim el-Salahi
Minnie Pwerle
Jean-Michel Basquiat
Edvard Munch
Natalia Goncharova

Pretty neat. I wouldn't mind seeing an adult video run through some of these filters. Make those privates look REAL SCARY. Was that a boob? Was that a penis? The hell if I know but I think it had a face.

Keep going for the video, it's worth at least skipping around.

Thanks to Jeffrey S, who was really hoping for a Salvador Dali edit before realizing that would probably break everything.

    looks like neural nets again. seems the less identifiable figures there are in the reference painting used the better the outcome

  • Thomas Derbanne

    It is

    It is the same "find an image which agrees with some neurons response" thing as deepdreams or LSDNN (which has a twitch channel!!)

    But this time, the result tries to:
    - have the same response as the original image
    - have the same textures as the painting
    Instead of explicitely modeling textures, they use the response of some of the layers of a network that has already been trained for texture recognition

  • timeiskey

    i dont know exactly how it works and i dont take anyones word for it except my own. but ill look it up and see if i can get a prototype going

  • obriencj

    Poe wrote on both?

  • Geekologie
