This special session organized by Gray Area brings together leading experts and developers in the field of artificial intelligence in conversation with artists and thinkers grappling with AI tools. Since free-to-use text-to-image and text chat AI tools like Chat GPT-3, DALL-E, MidJourney, and Stable Diffusion have become more widely available, their use has exploded. Artists have been able to scale up their practices in unprecedented ways by collaborating with AI to generate and curate outputs. At the same time, AI imaging and chat have complicated what we thought we knew about artistic relationships with technology. A number of questions emerge from this context: how do we define authorship when so much of the creative process is delegated to machines? Where does artistic agency intersect with algorithmic autonomy? And what does a proliferation of AI-produced images mean for the future of digital culture? Join us as we unpack the complicated entanglements of AI and artists working today.
