Artificial Images is the art practice of Derrick Schultz. Utilizing cutting edge machine learning technology, his work explores multisensory perception, generative abstraction, and the future of ecology.
In addition to creating his own work, Derrick also teaches machine learning to artists, designers, and image makers. Artificial Images courses combine small group personal instruction with a digital community from across the world.
Advanced StyleGAN Techniques is a course for image makers (graphic designers, artists, illustrators and photographers) to go beyond the basics of creating images and videos using StyleGAN. In this course we will use Google Colab exclusively to look at a suite of StyleGAN extended tools to get the most out of our generative models.
Video Art with FFMPEG is a course for artists interested in unlocking the power of ffmpeg to create generative video projects. In this course we will use Google Colab to combine Python and ffmpeg to create scriptable video tools. We’ll also look at ffmpeg-python, a modern coder-friendly syntax that can be used as an alternate scripting language for ffmpeg. If you’ve ever used an ffmpeg script and found it powerful but utterly confusing, I think you’ll enjoy this class.
