Glitzie Glitch and Magic Brownie

I’m having a lot of fun with this “Jabberwocky” series. One of things that I like about it is that it allows the reader to visualize her own stories. This really fits well with my What Androids Dream series which also allows the viewer to make up her own stories.

This poem really fits well with

What Androids Dream No. 143

I would be very interested in reading about the stories that you “see” in the comment section.

Glitzie Glitch and Magic Brownie
Resolve the Minion Murbles
Flozzy Flipper flarks the Townie
Under Shadie Shirps and Gerbils.

Time to frown and meep with Grannies
While the Groopers waddle and Flimsy
Flippers flap and turn to flannel Flannies
Shellie smiles and gambols free and whimsie.

Murkle stops and stumps the stormy nurmie
She flips the berkol lightly and stamps
While Shapley Shifter dances light with Hermie
Stop it Munkle Spritely you’ll attract Smudgy Vamps.

Glitzie Glitch and Magic Brownie
Resolve the Minion Murbles
Flozzy Flipper flarks the Townie
Under Shadie Shirps and Gerbils.


Formatted for 8K UHD screens,
this series was created by collaborating with the artificial intelligence at the heart of the DeepDream project. I input some of my completely abstract images to the software to see what patterns the AI would find in them. The results are the series that I call What Androids Dream. A sort of homage to Philip K Dick, the series anticipates the coming Singularity when even artists may be superseded by machine superintelligence.

Just as photography inspired the cubists and abstract expressionists, what will art generating, super intelligent machines inspire? Perhaps a collaboration between man and machine to find that perfect image?

I find the alien creatures that the AI “finds” to be strangely endearing, like the “hopeful monsters” of the Cambrian explosion — perhaps even an electric sheep or two for Philip K Dick’s android’s private amusement. For me, the images create a mental atmosphere of sci-fi, psychedelic surrealism filled with strange, dreamlike stories.

There seem to be many stories going on in each image — stories that are private and unique to each viewer, stories that are unique to each viewing.
