Muertids is a project centered around a single archetypal image. The techniques used in Synthoids are applied to a single image in an attempt to “dream” cultural context into the original seed. In this particular case Diffusion AI is fed the primary keyword seeds “sugar skull” and “mayan” along with a large batch of other descriptive prompts, parameters, and images to produce homogenous slightly varied output images.
Synthoids is an experiment using Generative Adversarial Neural Networks and Diffusion AI to modify an individual archetypal image. The seed image is modified using GAN, Diffusion with keyword seeds, and manual intervention resulting in unique output that fits the “mold boundaries” of the original archetype.
