Summer research with Ai powered generative networks.

Over the summer, I’ve been playing around with platforms that use AI to generate images from text prompts. First, I started with WomboAi, then graduated to Disco Diffusion, and finally got an invite to Midjourney.

Each platform has a different process, but no coding skills are needed. You’ll need to know some basic digital image-making rules and practice using prompts to get the best results. This prompt vocabulary isn’t based on normal sentences, it’s effects and keywords.

I am in the process of writing a short story (Border Astronaut) that was also developed with the aid of Ai applications that utilize GPT-3 processing, such as Copy.Ai. After completing the story, specific words from the narrative were selected to create the prompts for the illustrations. I am looking forward to exploring the creative and relational possibilities that this technology offers to imagine other worlds. At least in 2D, for the time being.
