My family is obsessed with AI-generated images like the ones above. The technology is fascinating, amazing, and hysterically bad at times. I generated these using the free website Craiyon. There are many other generators, all of which seem to vary in quality. While I get tremendous entertainment from these, it also brings up ethical questions that I’ve been trying to wrap my head around. It appears that the generator is taking parts of existing artwork/photos and mashing them together, and applying filters. I’m sure as this industry continues to grow and people begin applying them in commercial ways this will bring up interesting questions about ownership, creativity, and art in general.
Katie Kime really likes collars. Me too.
I am enjoying the Netflix show Ginny & Georgia. It has an early 2000’s WB vibe, which I find comforting.
