The AI Halloween Art of Your Nightmares Is Here #ArtTuesday #ElectronicHalloween
Sarah Rose Sharp over at Hyperallergic used Dall-E to add a spooky flare to some iconc art. The prompts she used are pretty great too: “Andrew Wyeth’s Christina’s World but she’s hiding from Michael Meyers”
This spooky season is a special time, as it is the first spooky season with the widespread ability for the public to generate AI (artificial intelligence) imagery from simple text prompts. As previously noted, AI generators trend creepy on their best days, so what will happen if we use them to spookily revisit some contemporary and art historical landmark moments?
A straight forward prompt but works well: “Hieronymous Bosch Halloween”
“Botticelli’s Birth of Venus in a climate disaster”
