The Flying Circus ^
These painted travels across Circuses, Circuits, Circles, and Circes were developed as experiments in introducing discreteness in the smoothness of generated imagery through diffusion models such as Dall-e, Midjourney, Stable Diffusion, etc. A txt-img model was prompted to produce spectacles of stages, characters, moods and atmospheres which were then further drafted with img-img models. Frescoed tents, suspended acrobats, courting fools, singing birds, pirouetting pantomimes; a baroque festival in the bright light of the sun.
