The basis of these works is AI generated, but I am the architect and engineer. Many have their resentment about AI art, but at least it beats the hell out of the worthless NFT stupidity. I believe AI generated art can work alongside "traditional" crafts.
All my AI works are from a series titled AI&I.
So, my opinion on AI art (I don't care if you disagree. Go and cry somewhere else):
Many have their resentment about AI art, but at least it beats the hell out of the worthless NFT stupidity. I believe AI art can exist alongside "traditional" crafts. There is a controversy regarding to where the software gets its source material from (e. g. images/photos to learn what is what). To keep it short: Everyone steals, borrows, lends, draws inspiration from or whatever you want to call it. There are extremely few artists that are one hundred percent original in their artistic expression (if any?). In that sense AI are doing the same thing, but with a much much larger "catalogue". I have a feeling that the artists (not a protected title, by the way) that makes the most noise over this are the least original.
I also want to mention how the old masters used tools such as Camera Obscura, Camera Lucida, different lenses etc. David Hockney made an interesting documentary on the subject. See it!
Another point is how musicians for years have used pre-programmed loops, "borrowed" from old recordings etc. in their own - so called, original works.
You can buy a pencil, a piece of charcoal, paints and a canvas, it doesn't mean that you automatically become an (great) artist. The same goes for AI art, it needs a human touch, a keen eye, an aesthetic instinct and skills to make it work as a piece of art.
The AI works you see on my site all exist as physical D.G.A prints. Some are unique, others as limited edition prints.
