Workshop: Visual Strategies for Neural Artistic Style Transfer @ The Midway SF

  • The Midway 900 Marin Street San Francisco, CA, 94124 United States (map)

I'm running a workshop on how to apply the style of one image to another. We'll use the camera and the environment as an interface for personal image synthesis with a neural network. Presented by the CODAME Art+Tech Festival @ The Midway, San Francisco, 2-5p June 4 02018

Monday June 4 1400-1700 Workshop

Neural Style Transfer Template


Neural style transfer is an AI technique that attempts to apply the style of one image to another. For example, a self portrait can be made to look like Picasso painted it on a lazy day. Apps such as Prisma put this technology in anyone's hands but there is a point where the novelty becomes a toy. Without a pipeline to extend the image making into other creative practices, the outcomes lack depth. We need to go deeper. Attendees will run image synthesis in the Cloud and focus on narratives and strategies for making personal artwork. No programming experience is required. Exploration will be guided by prompted exercises

Requirements
Bring a laptop and a camera (anything from a webcam to the Hubble telescope)
