iS IT REAL? Ai art
Updated: Mar 11
How do you define 'real'? If you're talking about what you can feel, what you can smell, what you can taste and see, then 'real' is simply electrical signals interpreted by your brain.

AI art is a digital art form that is created by artificial intelligence. This is a new phenomenon, as the first AI artwork was only created in the year 2015.
The first AI artwork was generated by an algorithm called “DeepDream”. This algorithm was developed by Google, and it uses
neural networks to process images and then creates new images from them. DeepDream works on any type of image, but it's most commonly used to create psychedelic effects on photographs of landscapes or animals.
Art is a form of expression that has been around for thousands of years. It is the one thing that has always been the same and will never change. The way we create art has changed over time with the introduction of new technologies and techniques, but the end result is still just as beautiful as it was before.
We see Ai art as a new form of expression and a way to express ourselves through technology. The Ai artists are using AI to guide their work in ways that would have never been possible before, opening up a whole new world for us to explore. We are seeing more and more Ai art being created every day, with an increase in its complexity and detail each time.
Everyone will have a different option, but my thinking is this..
If prompt writing (the things that you type to tell the Ai what to create) is an art form, just like coding can be called an art form...and Artificial Intelligence is the apex of human creativity, then AI art is the most creative form of art to date. All throughout history artist have used whatever tools were available to them at the time.
With the prompt, you are able to draw(no pun intended) inspiration from the whole history of art right back to the first cave painting, from blueprints to your favourite masterpiece, from photography, film, games, essentially any image to ever exist! As an artist I think that not utilsing the power of Ai to some estent would be doing yourself a disservice, even if your thing is the old master technique af Mischtechnik painting. Everyone can learn something from playing around with Ai art!
