In a previous post, I experimented with creating AI-based art for the tobacco industry. The system I was working with produced 64 proofs at a time, in the form of a 64×64 matrix. The matrix I created based on images of cigars produced two proofs which work quite well when combined together. I find it fascinating that these two proofs happened to be displayed one-on-top of the other as if the machine was making an aesthetic suggestion based on the combination of proofs.
The blob in the lower left-hand corner looked like a hand. So here it is with a hand with a cigar photoshoped in.
Working with the hand to make it fit better with the rest of the work.
At this point, the process has tied back an actual image of a cigar to the base images which were used to train the system which produced the proofs.
