DeepDream is an a computer vision software program written by google. Using neural networks it attempts to find patterns within any image you throw at it. Being a photographer, I thought it would be fun to give it some pictures I’ve taken and see what it would come up with.

I started with the same base photo, but with settings slightly changed with every render.

Pass into the iris…Perhaps it’s just irony, or maybe it was able to recognize I had an Oculus rift headset on, and so it saw a bunch of eyes.

Fireworks can create some pretty results. From a distance they look normal, but zoom in and some interesting things start to take shape.

Abstract patterns become even more abstract.

At least it can recognize dogs.

Which ultimately resulted in…

Seattle’s Gun Wall.
