For edges2cats, I found it most fun and interesting when I would try to create things completely unlike cats -- for example, a teacup, and see what kind of "cat" would be created. I found it odd, however, that when I did strive to make a cat, it didn't seem to register it all that well (ie. my double headed cats)


Facades was also interesting to play with in that it allowed me to create this unique entities that, in my opinion, are barely recognizable as buildings and architecture.

B. GANPaint Studio

GANPaint studio, in my experience, was a bit more frustrating to use. I had some difficulty in painting over certain areas and altering the landscape. The "dome feature" was the only one that I could paint over in random areas and have be the most notably.

C. ArtBreeder



The most intriguing part of ArtBreeder for my was by far toggling between the different percentage of genes in each photo. Even merely scaling one gene on one side of the spectrum to the other side of the spectrum produced crazy diverse results. I found it interesting how I managed to create something that looks of a bread / boiled crab / cheesey tomato dish without using a single element of anything of that sort.
