Understanding and Appreciating Uses of AI in Image-making Practice

Claire Anscomb (De Montfort)


The contributions of humans to visual artworks generated using AIs are frequently downplayed, but is it appropriate to engage with and evaluate such work as primarily the product of a machine? In addition to examining how much knowledge of the processes behind AI image generation benefits appreciation of these works, in this talk, I will assess the ways human agency permeates these processes and how viewers relate to these creative acts through the resultant products.
