What they show at this link changes… and I am intrigued by the possibility of generating images someday from the prompts for workshops and tapping rounds and seeing what rises from AI-processed artform prompts.
AI Prompted with: trail cam photo of fox wearing red-white-sequined-Christmas-sweater
Decided to get my own account for $10/month on midjourney.com. It’s geeky hard in some ways since it requires Discord to also work. Still… I mean, look at this otter! He’s got the Perfect Size cuppa coffee!
That’s so cool and creative. Fascinating stuff here. I wonder how it works. Do you type something in to tell it what to create? Is it random? I signed up for one Ai but it only makes faces or super heroes. I haven’t tried it yet. Can you create any more pictures?
Want to give me a prompt and I’ll see what it comes up with?
There’s randomness, for sure, like an improv where it grabs different raw material and “riffs” on it. You can specify a style, like “classical” or “cartoon” or “Rembrandt” or mystical, etc. And then it gives 4 options and you can do variations on one of those or let it evolve the one you find most interesting.
I had no idea things like this existed. I did briefly see the end of a Dutch film last night which involved a woman taking part in an experiment with an Ai partner who was matched to her and designed to learn from her. It was pretty interesting to see and to explore the complexities, benefits and implications
I meditated to this unique co-creation… and then went happily to bed.
Here I’m choosing to share these because, well, I like sharing and I also like the notion that just like a hand crafted drawing with happy faces can inspire and evoke me, we’ve got choices now that are evolving rapidly to enhance our imagination and ability to share. It’s… extraordinary.
