Happy New Year! Ten years and 1,000 deviations! Mostly hang out on FB these days, but thought I should drop these here in case somebody stumbles on them and likes them.

Many of these deep dream experiments start with old (and not so old) pieces of mine. While it is great fun watching DD transform an image beyond recognition, there is a somewhat limited imagery at the far end of the process. For me the trick to getting the most interesting results is in the middle where it is not longer the seed image and has not yet become another weird picture of deep dream's obsessions. In that zone you can either come up with novel and largely unpredictable results, or you can use it as a powerful, controllable visual effects filter, like a weird PS plugin with a fairly steep learning curve. I am very much in the trial and error discovery phase, and although you might think I'm posting every experiment I run, in fact it is more like one for every twenty.

Beginning with some very simple pieces, I expect to be posting more regularly. Expect me.

Make that a couple of years. My 20th century loner brain became dangerously overloaded by 21st century social media some time ago, so I took a long break. For the moment I have only returned to let you know where I can be found, for those who might want to find me. I have just started a blog at panludicon.wordpress.com in order to have a public place to work on my latest obsessions.
I promise to be far more responsive to the few who visit me there - and you might find it interesting. Wishing all the best for all of you.
