The artist and friend MIA commissioned me to edit the single cover for their upcoming track.
To distort the photo, I created a moving cover in after effects. In the lower left-hand corner is a video generated with VQGAN+, a free machine learning software. I input my client’s image with the words “floating aimlessly” and let the program cycle through roughly 200 iterations. I then exported a screenshot of the video into photoshop for final alterations, edits, and text overlays.
