Midjourney AI Creates 'Théâtre D'opéra Spatial', Wins Art Fair First Prize

Jason Allen won the Colorado state fair art competition using Midjourney software, which can use verbal prompts by the user to create original works of art.


(Théâtre D'opéra Spatial)

Sincarnate’s name is Jason Allen, who is president of Colorado-based tabletop gaming company Incarnate Games. According to the state fair’s website, he won in the digital art category with a work called “Théâtre D'opéra Spatial.” The image, which Allen printed on canvas for submission, is gorgeous...

“We’re watching the death of artistry unfold before our eyes,” a Twitter user going by OmniMorpho said in a reply that gained over 2,000 likes. “If creative jobs aren’t safe from machines, then even high-skilled jobs are in danger of becoming obsolete. What will we have then?”

(Via Vice.)

Science fiction writer Anthony Boucher wrote about the creativity of computers and robots in his 1943 short story Robinc:

"I'll bet I know why android cooks were never too successful. Nobody ever included the Verhaeren factor in their brains."

The Verhaeren factor, if you've studied this stuff at all, is what makes robots capable of independent creative action. For instance, in the robots that turn out popular fiction - in a very small proportion, of course.

"Yes, that's the trouble. They never realized that a cook is an artist as well as a servant. Well, we'll give him in his brain what he needs for creation and in his body the tools he needs to carry it out..."
