When Elon switched over the Twitter bird to an “X” he made Twitter less visible. By matching the black line art of Twitter’s main competitor Threads, he made them look equal. Underestimating how many people are psychologically conditioned to search for the little blue bird on their phones.[Read more…] about Since the logo switch over to “X”, Twitter has become less visible
Ordering a pizza doesn’t make you a Chef. Even if you select the toppings. So why would this be any different in the world of digital art? In an age where words matter, I believe that it is more important than ever to set the record straight on AI and the language adopted by the people that choose to prompt “art” requests from it.
If I task you with making art for me based on my description of the desired final product, then I am acting as an Art Director. If you make an artistic interpretation for me based on that request, then you are acting as the Artist. *with me so far?
Even if I, as the Art Director posses the artistic ability to make it myself, it is irrelevant. In this instance, directing art makes you an Art Director. It is unethical for an Art Director to claim credit for something that an intelligent Artist has made for them by request. Not crediting the creator is not an accurate recording of the provenance of the piece – and it’s untrue.
If an Art Director takes the requested art and then modifies it, the art does not magically become theirs. It is by definition an artistic collaboration. Even if the Artist is unaware of its modification (or even cares). AIs don’t don’t care about anything. This also does not make it alright for an AI Art Director to claim a prompted image as their own. Copyrights on AI created artworks continue to be contested in the courts. One thing is for certain, more than 1 intelligence has claim over these creations.[Read more…] about If you use AI to make art, you’re not an AI Artist. You’re an AI Art Director.

This 5 word prompt generated the image below. What continues to surprise me is not the interesting outcome of that sentence, it’s the illusion that people are under that they are creating. They are not. In fact, anyone capable of spelling is now in a position to call themselves an Artist. A title that cannot be claimed by people who pay a service to create things for them.[Read more…] about Is AI art prompting artistic?
At the heart of TV and Film Production is a good story. Storyboard Artists are essential to map out the proper sequence of shots required to tell that story. This is one of many aspects of production that is at risk of disappearing with the rise of AI.
This animated digital collage was comprised of several components. All of which were assembled under the guidance of human creativity. No AI was used, because no AI was required. In order to tell stories about humans, it is imperative that you are one in the first place. If you don’t have a body or a soul, then you are unqualified to tell our tales. Even if you are prompted by a human to emulate our art, in the end, that’s all it is – an emulation.
