Population: Infinite Week 4

Assignment: Write a proposal (what, why, how) for your final project.

Since last December or January, I’ve tried to do a coding sketch everyday. Through this extended exercise, I think I’ve been able to develop a personal style and I’d like to further develop this path. But because I’ve been doing this for so long, recently I’ve been feeling somewhat stuck in thinking of new ideas. For my final project, I would like to train my own style transfer model with these sketches that I’ve accumulated in order to transfer my “style” onto other images. Style transfer is something that I’ve been interested in for a while and I think this would be an interesting way to see how other images can be altered with my “style”. I also think that limiting myself to one medium (p5.js) is too constricting, and I’d like to add other methods to my ongoing experiment. I’d also like this to be a way that I could possibly break out of this creative space that I’ve recently found myself stuck in. In order to achieve this I think I will try to use ml5.js and Paperspace using the linked guide and the sketches that I’ve already done to train with.
