“Adafruit” made with VQ-GAN + CLIP

Over the weekend I made some generative ai art using VQ-GAN + CLIP tutorial and Google Collab Notebook. It’s a bunch of Python that can take words and make pictures based on trained data sets.

This one is the word “Adafruit”, so this is what the output is based on the training. I made a short video of it before I was able to do an automatically made video after its iteractions.

It starts out as a little LED looking thing, and eventually evolves to some goth looking cosplay thing and then pink hair grows out of it. It’s on a table with some tools, parts, and some fruit. Not bad, if I showed this someone in the electronics world and asked what company is this, they’d probably say Adafruit.

The “music” on the video was also generated by ai, I used aiva.ai and tried the Synthwave.

And here’s an article on AI generated art which has a good explainer as to how these work and what’s going on (another good one here).
