I often use Midjourney to help spark ideas for my paintings. I am drawn to it as a source of inspiration and a commentary on contemporary life. I’m fascinated by its ability to understand elements of the human experience quite well while remaining forever disconnected from it. This disconnect highlights what makes us human. For example, I’d heard that AI could not figure out how humans eat spaghetti. This inspired me to use spaghetti in prompts that lead to “Ouroboros” and “Artwork for a Restaurant”. For “Swiping”, I added the spaghetti myself, taking inspiration from what I’d seen AI do with it. Yes, AI is being trained on the hard work of artists, but then again so am I. No ideas materialize out of thin air.
