Memory Palace

This portrays the aesthetics of memory storage and recall in my mind's eye. Each container is an "address" for information, with size denoting the broadness of the category. It is like an inverted box treemap, where the contents exist on the outside of the parent container. The sum of their volumes never exceeds that of the base they're attached to. It is difficult to accurately capture the forms, as specifics are impossible due to the transient nature of the mind's eye. The space is somewhere between 2D and 3D, with motion somehow gluing the two together. Such is the nature of synesthesia/ideasthesia.
I used a style transfer GAN to help paintify the original 3D render, which was very sharp. This was accopmlished by breaking the image into many overlapping tiles, transfering the style, and then assembling them again and healing the seams with digital painting. It is an early example of adding generative AI to a work in a subtle way.
