To be honest, my first thought was that this would replace the work of many artists and platforms of stock images for agencies. It is a technology in process and even so, it has quite stunning results. And I will definitely use it in my articles, as I have done in this one.
We are facing the beginning of a new stage, where in practical terms, tools will be replacing artists as craftspeople: art work for companies, art concepts, book illustrations, storyboards… sky is the limit.
Of course, the bright side is that this technology will open a new world of possibilities to express ourselves through art. This therapeutic process is no longer for just gifted artists, but for everybody, from physical or neurological treatments, to educational matters, or mental health therapies and rehabs.
I must say it is a great exercise also for artists to explore their own creativity and combine it with other tools like Photoshop or After Effects to achieve even better results. These mixed compositions are all over social platforms by now, and most of them are awesome.
It feels like The Rise of the Machines is closer and closer to the art world, museums and exhibitions. And just our souls will be the difference between a true piece of art and an empty computer generation. Question is, will we be able to distinguish them?
