“The images generated through AI are hallucinations of algorithms that we don’t know how to stop believing. AI is like a big mountain, where such images are just grass that we, as photographers/graphic designers/filmmakers, nibble at and complain that it’s too sour (miscounted fingers, exaggerated gestures, lack of authentic emotion), but the mountain is growing, the number of tools is increasing and one can use so many that no one will wonder how we like a piece of it. We can set our own priorities and tastes, choose from more than a few thousand tools the ones that are most useful to us, give up the race, or take advantage of the phenomenon and let ourselves be carried away into the new. The TOGETHER HALUCINATIONS workshop will help you see AI from many different perspectives and decide which tools you really need to use.” – Kobas Laksa / kobasfilm.pro
