Visions of the Algorithmic Mind: A Journey Through Ancient Mysticism and Digital Futures

Series Overview

"Visions of the Algorithmic Mind" is an artistic journey through the entwined realms of ancient mysticism and the digital future. Each piece, from the self-reflective "Visionary Threshold" to the transcendent "Mystic Gaze," invites a contemplation of consciousness in an era shaped by technology. This collection captures the silent dialogue between the past's sacred patterns and tomorrow's possibilities, offering a visual narrative that celebrates the fusion of human insight with the boundless potential of new creative expressions.

The series explores themes of consciousness in technology. It includes 4 1/1 pieces created over 2023.

Creative Process & Tools

I used the following tools and techniques to create this series:

  • Midjourney V4
  • Magnific AI
  • P5JS
  • Adobe After Effects

The initial images were generated with Midjourney V4, then upscaled with Magnific AI. The sparkle / pointillism effect was added with P5JS and exported as a PNG sequence that was assembled in After Effects and exported in the final MP4 format.

Highlighting Specific Works

Polychora Mirage

"Polychora Mirage" - The Herald of the Series

The inspiration for this artwork may come from the exploration of multidimensional spaces and complex geometries that challenge our perception of reality. The name 'Polychora' refers to four-dimensional shapes, suggesting this piece as a visual representation of higher-dimensional spaces. The surreal architecture and the spherical perspective give a nod to the infinite possibilities within the realms of AI-generated art, where the laws of physics and perspective can be endlessly manipulated.

Conceived for the prestigious Claire Silver's AI Competition 4, the digital version of this artwork mirrors the physical piece's intrigue, bringing the magic of CNC machined wood craftsmanship into the digital realm.

Mystic Gaze

Mystic Gaze

Here, the inspiration seems to dwell in the mystical and the esoteric. The eye, clear and central, is framed by patterns reminiscent of mandalas and sacred geometrical shapes, hinting at the ancient knowledge now being reinterpreted through modern digital means. The concentric circles and the overseeing eye could represent the all-seeing nature of AI and the omnipresent digital surveillance in our lives, watching over the human condition.

Visionary Threshold

Visionary Threshold

The inspiration behind "Visionary Threshold" is a fusion of historical architecture and futuristic vision, a celebration of the human capacity to imagine and transform. The static image version of this work intertwines the grandeur of past civilizations, as seen in the architectural elements, with the boundless potential of future realms, suggested by the celestial bodies. The pointillism effect introduced through P5JS in the animated version adds a layer of vibrancy, symbolizing the shimmering interface where our tangible reality meets the infinite possibilities of the digital universe. This piece reflects on humanity's perpetual journey through the known and the unknown, the seen and the unseen, the past and the future.
