Foster the People are one of the first band’s to take advantage of Google’s DeepDream technology, a computer vision which uses a convolutional neural network to find and enhance patterns in images, thus creating a dream like hallucinogenic appearance.
Yeah, I know. What did that just say?
Basically, Google DeepDream is a smart technology that creates patterns within images that your brain will like, thus making the video more engaging than any one human could do.
Director Daniel Henry had this to say about the video, “In researching more about the DeepDream world, I loved the idea of letting the collective unconscious of the internet play a part in the forming the music video. At any moment you can freeze frame and start to see a cryptic narrative that unfolds in infinite degrees. You might see a dog, or a dinosaur, or a dead president in these hallucinations, or it could just be projections of our inner turmoil.”
