The Gathering Work
Using the Consensus algorithm, Gathering is an output created combining both using classical generative algorithms along with generative machine learning models. I elaborate in more detail on the use of the algorithm in this article.
Throughout the tuning and configuration of the algorithm, a certain colour scheme was worked into place. The application of the generative output from the machine learning model allows for the colours to ‘bleed’, while staying more or less consistent with the main input colours throughout the canvas. This introduces offspring colours that have come about as a product of ‘bleed’. Below are highlighted both the intended main input colours and the unintended offspring colours, along with close up examples from the final Gathering artwork.
