Ignite the Future: Rain in the colour
Artwork 1 Details :This abstract piece is an interpretation of an explosion of knowledge and creativity, in which our ordinary lives will be rained on by various new things that we have never imagined. One area of concern to ordinary people is that a lot of jobs will be lost to automation and although we thought that this will take some time, we are now witnessing great changes, like AI in the visual art industry for example. I believe though, that jobs that will be lost will give birth to new ones that nobody has thought of before and that humans will be busier than ever and hopefully doing more creative things than ever before. Tools / process: Concept/initial image and glitch via two Diffusion models, post processing via Affinity Photo, animation via Blender, export as mp4 via DaVinci Resolve.
Artist/ Collective Bio:Waragwag: (Hiligaynon) v. to spread, to disseminate, to broadcast. warrragwag has a background in architecture and interiors, specifically archviz since the early 00's. In late 2018 he finally learned Blender and broke free of his reliance on 3dsMax . Active in the cryptoart space for more than a year now, his work mostly focused on looping 3d motion graphics with architecture elements. He came up with “Make architecture weird again.” as he always sketched weird stuff that are totally impractical to construct, but may be possible digitally. His main tool is Blender, but recently has experimented with AI art using diffusion models. Although not a coder, he’s fascinated by how the machine interprets words and loves spending time tweaking its settings.
