NeRF aesthetics

Static image material experiments with NeRF "hallucinations"

I have seen the noise created in the Neural Radiance Field generation process as "hallucinations". Language that is both poetic & problematic at the same time. Rather than attempting to reduce this visual phenomena, I have been working with it (and finding ways to encourage / exaggerate it) as a way of embracing and exploring this NeRF aesthetic. (An aesthetic I assume will be optimised out of the process as the technology "advances")

NOTES

Hallucination is currently in common usage across the machine learning space as an accepted "semi-technical" term, including in the "mission" page for Meta's ill-fated(?) "Galactica".
