ART: Midnight on Mars
The announcement email for this Substack featured an image from the extraordinary Midnite on Mars Insta — featuring AI-tinged images. There’s a few other accounts that are doing similar things, if you dig around the hashtags.
There’s a debate to be had on AI art, of course (and don’t get me started on AI text: I recently saw a service offering to have a computer write a eulogy for a loved one for you, for God’s sake) but I suspect the same will be true of it as was with digital art when it emerged in the 1990s. It’s something real artists can sometimes use to bring a pre-existing vision to fruition, not (yet) something of true value in and of itself.
Either way, I love these: it’s like someone took a photo of what was in Ray Bradbury’s head, after he’d spent a night out taking drugs with David Bowie.
