Like. A friend-of-friends got in on Dall-E 2 and was showing some stupid shite they made with it.

And the thing is. It is impressive as hell? You give it a vague description and it will give you something that generally matches the vibe of the description. Plus looks very well rendered.

But also. Uh. It gives me these weird dystopian feelings. It being in Elongated Muskquito’s pockets doesn’t help with that feeling, but it’s not its main cause. I can’t even articulate why it makes me feel so uncomfy though. Was hoping someone smarter than I shared in the same feeling.

It’s “art” devoid of emotion or sentiment. It’s removing humanity from one of the purest forms of human expression. It’s a reduction of art into pure aesthetics. There is no meaning, there is no intention, there is no connection to be made. There’s certainly no message or politics (and we all know how icky this weird push for “apolitical” art is, and how it benefits the ruling class).

There’s also an underlying sense that aiding in training AI to produce art is to participate in the destruction of art as a human pursuit. Already artists are rarely compensated for their work, and society is discouraged from believing that “artist” is a worthwhile or valuable pursuit, while at the same time we are all encouraged to consume “art” at an ever-increasing rate. This is just the next step in devaluing the human labour of creation by automating something that truly should never be automated, so that a few years from now corporations can sell us all perpetually-trademarked computer generated media and completely remove artists from the equation altogether.

off-topic : Not sure you’ve noticed since you pasted the link, but this was actually a quote-sharing of your post. On Mastodon or Lemmy, the kind of “recycle” logo links to your post.

I do not want AI to start creating art, it just devalues art as a whole, and automates something that never should have been automated.

I actually see this as a positive development because AI will fill the niche of commercial illustration and this could lead to decommercialization of art in the long run. If AI can crap out commercial art quickly and cheaply then actual art will be done for the sake of art.

art is already super devaluated. anything mainstream in art I can’t call actual art other than good production/aesthetics. So nevermind; actual artists will still do actual art while commercial artists will keep doing souless comercialized content.

I think there is some sort of training that intentionally distorts faces to avoid it being used for deepfakes. I guess the same applies for pornographic images?
