We asked a new kind of AI art tool to make ‘paintings’ of Australia

AI Veille cyber

The images are so crafted and « painterly » that you may not realise at first they have been dreamed up by a machine in just a few minutes.

Maybe you’ve seen one already, but not realised what it was.

It may have looked like something you’d seen before in an art book or a museum.

These images are the product of a new AI-generated art scene that’s exploded thanks to the development of free and easy-to-use tools that require (at the very least) short text prompts to create unique pictures.

The image in the tweet above, for example, was created by giving the text prompt « a summer day » to an AI tool.

Supplied with a short excerpt from T.S. Eliot’s poem The Lovesong of J. Alfred Prufrock, it produced this:

These images are hard to classify — they’re part artwork, part a function of computer coding, part glimpse into some collective, online unconscious that maps the associations between images and words.

Some have described them as « alien dreams » or « peering into the ‘mind’ of a neural network ».

Sounds interesting.

So we had a go at making our own images, with the broad theme of « Australia ».

Here’s the results.
