[video] The Trance Machine (2019), presented at ICCV in Seoul (Korea).

  The Trance Machine explores the liminal border between awareness and context. Starting from the idea that every image is a composition of successively smaller images, an ever-changing manifold of frames within frames, the artists’ vision holds a tacit conversation

The Merz Variations (2018) are a series of neural network experiments in convolutional image blending. Using a combination of ‘style transfer’ and Deep Dream, the video slowly increments the influence of the Deep Dream algorithm on the blending of an

The bottom image blends an image of an iguana (Ballard’s world is crawling with them) with a painting by Max Ernst. The top image was edited and used to style the bottom result. The iguana is retrieved from here.

Images here capture two central visual metaphors of Ballard’s text; that of cities (top) destroyed by the environment and that of the environment (bottom) nurtured by the dying cities.
