The hallucinogenic cyber intelligences at Psychic VR Lab have been busy this week churning out images from submissions. I sent some images through the web interface knowing they would be challenging, only because the imagery is so graphically unambiguous, leaving little, actually, for the algorithm to imagine.

 

I can hear that can-opener but it doesnt make me happy.

  

This doleful cat face is from a Mix in Paper. Someone posted the eyes, I drew the cat head. Interesting additions as the organic textures add an other-worldly psychic space. The ear seems an extra-dimensional point of contact.

Watch what you think. Watch what you say.

 
This is my own art. Was really about thoughts becoming words, words eating thoughts. It seemed a bit somber and doomy with that big black word balloon, but AI turned it into something really gloomy with all the eyes in the black all-consuming extra-dark Lovecraftian depression dimension.
 

I am your cat god! Give me your fish!

 
And here, a shedding calico cat drawing I wasn’t entirely happy with. Ran some silly filters on to grind some background noise. And now it’s a demented shedding calico cat god dominating a harbour. Makes sense.

 
 Here we go. Final version. Mugs upcoming.

There’s a thread of an idea around this city that every incumbent city councillor needs disposal in the next election. Well, there are a few good ones, and there are some who need removal. The whole ‘throw them all out’ idea needs some sound second thought.

This is my contribution to that.

I’ve been playing in an iPad app called LetterMPress. The touch and manipulation controls are a bit fussy. The printing process is simulated too, and quite delightfully ignores whatever expediencies might evolve out of a purely digital process. Like printing class back in art school.

Image built with LetterMpress, overly skeuomorphic software, with sometimes awkward and fussy, unresponsive object manipulation. Still, quite beautiful results.

A queue of Qs in London

November 27, 2011

Some folks have started a media and Twitter campaign to bring the CBC show Q, and radio host Jian Gomeshi to London to do a broadcast. I thought I would make a bunch of Qs on my iPad and post them to the #jianinldnont twitter stream.

I had intended that I would create an image, tweet it and delete it. Some drawing apps have direct to Twitter connections. Otherwise the process required exporting to iPhoto app and tweeting from there. Well, of course photo stream caught every new import and backed them up anyway. Then iPhoto app starts to balk at connecting to Twitter – other apps connected just fine. Maybe Twitter, or the photo service decided I was spamming? Who knows. So now I pull the images from photo stream and have to tweet them from my Mac.

@3oh6 view full profile → decided to collect them to a Flikr stream. So i am now also sending them to mine, and sharing them with Bring Q to London Ontario! So, ironically, I have to back them up in order to share them.

Use these images freely.

Update December 7:  https://picasaweb.google.com/107162781169108803437/QsForQCampaign is 74 Q images inspired by contributing to this campaign. I’m certain ?) all the images are still on Flikr, but only 44 are displaying.
