NYC Looks Like an Amazing Acid Trip in This Stunning Video

When you put footage of New York City through a neural network, you get a city that looks like beautiful, moving artwork. Danil Krivoruchko and his team started shooting the city with an iPhone 6 in 240fps but completely transformed the footage in post processing and the results are hypnotic.


The skyline looks like a watercolor painting, the trains have hidden color and depth to them, and walking through Times Square feels like you’re on drugs. Actually, it always feels like that.

If you like the effect, Krivoruchko shared the code for postprocessing here.

Wow - it did some crazy things with the breakdancer’s bare torso as he spins around. Must be amplifying (and also delaying and averaging) light and color changes as he goes.
