The human condition and the animal condition aren't neatly divided. The lines between them cross over and merge in this psychedelic, DeepDream creation.

Originally created for Other Lives' Beat Primal competition, this video is now available to exclusively licence for recutting and syncing with another track. For enquiries please use the contact form.

This video was created by processing frames through Google's recently released DeepDream algorithm, which automatically emphasised elements it recognised in a feedback loop, leading to psychedelic imagery of animals and structures.

One of the first DeepDream films to be rendered in 1080p HD, Simon pushed the technology to its limits along with programmer Seán Mallard, utilising an amazon server to render thousands of individual frames, all to realise a vision that expressed the underlying themes of Beat Primal and the intentions of Other Lives.
