The MidJourney AI app has been raising eyebrows in the art community for all the reasons one might expect. Is it really art if a computer makes it? Is it your art? Is art dead? Are artists obsolete? And so on. It's an old argument.
Playing around with MidJourney is like letting your fevered brain roll the dice at the craps table of imagination. Happy accidents and nightmarish visions are all on the menu. Kudos to the developers, by the way; this project is quite a feat, and I'm curious to see how this and other algorithms evolve.
I've found the app an interesting tool to generate ideas, and explore artistic directions I might not have thought of otherwise. This gallery shows what I did with the AI's initial output. Please enjoy my synthetic collaboration.
