Neural Art

I enjoy working with neural networks in multimodal ways to see ideas in new ways. Some of the networks I use to create art from text are:
SIREN network & the embeddings from OpenAI's CLiP (see here for further detail).Latent Diffusion models trained on the LAION-400M Dataset
Prompt design, exploration, & model enhancements are my own.
