AI systems capable of generating custom artwork on demand have arrived. With this exciting new technology coming into the hands of the public, there is now a whole new option when it comes to choosing art to decorate your home with.
Meet your personal AI artist
You may have heard of the OpenAI DALL-E and DALL-E 2 AI art generation systems and the amazing original images they can create from a simple human language description, called a “guest”.
Although DALL-E has received the most media attention and is arguably the most impressive example of this technology, it is far from the only AI system for generating art. From relatively simple examples like Craiyon to DALL-E competitors like Google’s Imagen, there is no closing the Pandora’s box of sophisticated image generation technology.
While Google and OpenAI have been slow to let the general public get their hands on Imagen or DALL-E, other solutions like Midjourney are in open beta. All of the AI examples presented in this article were created using Midjourney. You can sign up for a trial and then pay for dedicated GPU time to create your own works from queries.
Whichever AI platform you choose, these tools offer a new source of artwork and a unique opportunity to do something special with your work and living space.
How to create an NFT
AI art gives you control over your decoration
You can iterate on your ideas through the work of AI-powered art generation tools like DALL-E’s MidJurney. As your understanding of the tools and the wording of your queries evolves, you can get closer and closer to creating the visual art you’ve envisioned.
When working with human artists, this is usually both impractical and unaffordable. Now you can take control of everything from the art style to the color scheme you will use. You can create exactly the overall visual effect you’re looking for and easily change it when you get bored.
Goodbye to mass produced prints
Most of the art people put in their homes is serial prints of famous works or cheap decorative art pieces bought from big box home improvement stores. While there is nothing inherently wrong with this, it does mean that we decorate our homes with works of art that anyone can have.
With art generated by artificial intelligence, what you hang in your home is a completely unique piece. At least the chances of someone else generating the exact same coin are so slim as to be impossible.
Midjourney, for example, allows you to keep generated artwork private (for an additional fee). So you can be sure that the prints you put on your walls do not hang in someone else’s house.
Commissioning artwork to order from human artists is still reserved for relatively wealthy members of society. Artists are not cheap, and placing a unique and original piece of art in your home is a time-consuming and expensive process. Human artists are also few and far between, and finding someone who can create the work you’re looking for can be a challenge, even if you’re on a budget.
AI art is affordable
With AI-powered artwork generation, creating custom artwork to your specifications is available to almost anyone. The cost of creating a piece of art is negligible, and you have many choices when it comes to a physical reproduction of the artwork for display, from affordable paper prints to high-end canvas reproductions.
Each platform has its own licensing agreements, but generally you own the rights to the artwork generated by your queries. This means you are free to use it for any purpose, including commercial. This is different from commissioned works, where you may have to pay extra for commercial rights or enter into a royalty agreement. Even if you just want to decorate your home, knowing that the artwork belongs to you and that no one else has a right to it can be a source of great satisfaction.
Human artists are always welcome
While it’s easy to get excited about the art of artificial intelligence and all the cool ways we can use it to make life more interesting, it’s not a one-size-fits-all solution to the bare walls of homes around the world. whole world . While we think there are a lot of benefits to hanging AI art on your wall, that doesn’t mean we think every piece of art in every home should be algorithmically generated!
Art has value for many reasons, but above all because it is an expression of humanity. Of course, artwork created by AI based on your queries are your expressions, but artwork created by others allows us to get in touch with the “soul” (for lack of a better word) of another human.
