My Computers Waking Dreams

This years Burning Man theme for 2022 is Waking Dreams which is amazing and a while back I did an AI art piece based upon their original image created by Tanner Boeger seen below.

Here is a IG post from the official Burning Man account about my piece they showcased

However I wanted to create a much more unique depiction of what my computer dreams while its riding around on its Playa powered AI bike though Black Rock City. So I set aside a few days to have my bike ride around the playa on some magical AI drugs and this this 15 minute video are clips of several days of its journey and what it brought back to me.

This took several days to render out with one of my high end machines and required a lot of tweaking to the system to generate these animations. I used Disco Diffusion Turbo mode which allowed me to provide multiple text to image prompts along with tweaking various settings and generate the animation paths to render out the final images which where converted into this final video.
