Deep Dream and GIF Creator
as if I had nothing else to do - I was surfing the net and found these sites where you can create great stuff with your photos. Deep Dream I had used before, when it was in beta, but now you have to sign up/sign in. It is free, and there are many more effects since last time I used the site - this I just created today:
Making animated GIF images is a little complicated in Photoshop, so when I was looking for a tutorial, I found this website where it is easy to create animated GIF: all you have to do is upload your images, select the parameters and voila, done! This one below is also my first test, using images I had on hand (some of which were photo-shopped, some previously created in Deep Dream).
let the fun begin!
here are a few more images from Deep Dream:

"Knowing doesn't reside in the knower,
nor does truth in what is known,
but in between."
- "A Mystical Epistemology", Peter Reason
Mystery has been banished; everything must be defined. And yet, while analytical thought bestows many gifts upon civilization, we remain insatiable. As if the unknown, itself, is the very ferment of community, humility, love....and life.
Embracing mystery as a source of inspiration, Fantastic Realists from around the world present this exhibition of numinous, visionary art - to reawaken feeling and intuition marginalized in today's cynical analyses.
Like the mystical traditions of countless cultures, their works assign symbols to The Unknowable, reaching through the ephemeral illusion we have come to know as reality, to an underlying, timeless, spiritual narrative. Universal mythology is interpreted with vivid imagination, and masterful technique renders it believably real.
Beneath the veil of seeming, an intuitive, visual language suggests that we are all part of something glorious, yet unrevealed. Fulfillment reflects from mystery in the primordial image, encouraging us to find, within ourselves, a unique understanding beyond the grasp of intellect...a feeling of connection...our own personal harmony with an ancient melody that is often unheard amidst the dissonance of perpetual immediacy.
I will be showing my drawing SPIRAL RAPTURE II
