What happens when you run pornography through Google DeepDream? Sheer bad trip terror!

Sheer bad trip terror! Last week, Google released its psychedelic DeepDream program to mass public fascination and acclaim. Using computer systems called “neural networks” that are modeled on the human brain, researchers created code that allows the primordial artificial intelligence of these cybernetic networks to transform photographs into psychedelic dreamscapes. Here’s how the image recognition and alteration works: We train an artificial neural network by showing it millions of training examples and gradually adjusting the network parameters until it gives the classifications we want.

M. LARSON) Huis Marseille - Dancing Light: Let It Move You. A photograph is a photograph, and a dance is a dance: stillness versus movement.

Huis Marseille - Dancing Light: Let It Move You

At first sight these two art forms might seem to be poles apart, but the exhibition "Dancing Light," showing throughout the newly double-sized Huis Marseille, proves the opposite. Along with film and video, photography turns out to be an ideal way to illuminate the characteristic emotionality and transport of dance—its 'primal power' to move us. To unravel the mystery at the heart of dance, the exhibition takes inspiration from flamenco and its concept of duende, that intangible and ineffable moment of rapture when the chemistry between flamenco musicians, dancers and audience bubbles up and overwhelms everyone. Duende (literally 'elf' or 'spirit') is an untranslatable concept, a mysterious force that is manifested in the combination of certain sounds, words and gestures.

"Dancing Light" captures the raw expression of flamenco in photography and in moving images. 15 B&W Historic Photos Restored To Full Color Bring The Past To Life. Relating to the past can be difficult when all you have to look at are faded black and white photos that feel like they are from another planet.

15 B&W Historic Photos Restored To Full Color Bring The Past To Life

The mind thinks and remembers in color, meaning a color photograph is much easier to connect with than a black and white photo. Thanks to film colorization historic photos restored to full color bring new life to history. Film colorization is a process that can be conducted digitally or by hand. Prior to the 1970’s basic colorization was possible but required carefully painting color onto film stock. The invention of the computer has completely altered the way we restore historic photos thanks to digital colorization. Research is conducted to match colors as closely to how they really looked as possible, but in some cases artists must guess which colors to use.

I had a friend who liked to collect occult illustrations from the earliest woodcuts of witches sabbats to hand-painted plates of winged demons. My friend did not see these pictures as telling a history of the occult, but rather a luminous narrative of the imagination’s power to invent monsters. Similarly fabulous creatures can be found in the illustrations to the Compendium rarissimum totius Artis Magicae sistematisatae per celeberrimos Artis hujus Magistros, a rare book on the occult dating from 1775 which is held by the Wellcome Library. The volume is written in a mixture of German and Latin and contains 31 water-color illustrations of the Devil and his demonic servants together with three pages of magic and occult ritualistic symbols.

With the warning “NOLI ME TANGERE” (“Do Not Touch”) on its cover, the compendium can be seen as a last attempt by those of faith to instil fear among the superstitious.
