The Start of Smthng Beautiful (2022)

Exploring poetry and text in Blender

The first of a series of works where I play with my poems as a narrative for a 3D world.

These GAN (Generative Adversarial Networks) generated videos are based off of a small dataset of trees, forests and skies. These were experiments trained quickly on Runway ML for a comission that didn't come to fruition, so I decided to use them myself.

I used some of the GAN videos as displacement for a sphere. The first iteration didn't render rotation but I found the textures beautiful

Look at those gooey, scaley textures!
