Last attempt using previous clusters.

This is my last attempt using the clusters that I took 30 days to train on the whole film before the residency. I wanted to make sure I could do everything I can to make them less abstract before I retrain on a subset of the film.

The last thing I tried to do was change the reconstruction program to scale percepts according to the ratio between the original segment and its closest cluster. I also went back to the non filtered percepts/clusters. The scaling certainly leads to some interesting aesthetic effects, especially the extreme increases in scale that lead to soft colour field elements. Following are a number of original frames and their still very abstract reconstructions:
