Ever since Google Deep Dream Generator debuted in 2015, the Internet has been awash in creepy, beautiful and surreal Hieronymus Bosch-meets-Van-Gogh-meets-Salvador-Dali imagery featuring dog faces, world-famous landmarks and psychedelic patterns. Generated by neural networks that essentially draw onto existing imagery, the technology has also been fodder for videographers, who have weaved the computer-generated art into everything from literary adaptations to music video mashups. The latest example, “Jean-Pierre,” by Monaco-based, multi-genre experimental band Hardcore Anal Hydrogen, is a stunning mix of mind-blowing machine-generated aesthetics that starts off punk and ends up more ambient electronic, with aggressive and sometimes scary imagery that morphs into an over-the-top, hallucinatory barrage of in-your-face, Deep Dream-generated visuals. Repeated viewings are impossible to resist.
