Listen now (27 mins) | I had some time to try three of the current AI art generating platforms. Confirmed some initial impressions, formed some thoughts of both it's utility, and threat to arts professionals.
Hey Max, interesting thoughts on Midjourney. To be honest, I'm in the horrified camp. I was following this photographer on Instagram and suddenly he started posting everyday: yup he's a "concept artist" now (using AI). It pissed me off and I unfollowed him. If, as I have heard and read many times, attention is the most sought after commodity and now virtually anybody can generate and post "concept art" within a minute, does it not change the game (in a bad way) for the artists who toiled hours to generate a piece?
I love the idea of distributing zines in neighbourhood libraries!
Though my real dream is building and decorating a mini neighbourhood library :P
