Generative AI Glitch Art: Looking for meaning in all the wrong places
From VCU THEWORKSHOP
Curious about the controversies surrounding AI-generated art? This workshop explores the problems, possibilities, and powers of image generation from text, especially for the purposes of collaboratively making art with AI by teaching it to fail. While a common mode of making art with tools like stable diffusion is to imagine the machine as accepting instructions -- Tell it to make a still life in oil and it will (ideally) generate one. We’re not going to do that. We are going to give it instructions it can’t follow and see what happens.
