This exclusive work is part of a generative machine learning series of landscapes around rural New England. This particular piece is a 30 minute time-lapse taken 1700ft in the air of a storm rolling into a valley in Hancock Vermont. I asked the computer to remove the road, parts of the forest, and the storm itself. After 2 dozen iterations the result is similar to the original capture, but with a machine interpretation of the removed elements. The work is then manually animated to loop perfectly. This work took 93 hours to render in total.
