How to create art today (an experiment)

I believe the work­flow of cre­at­ing art is dif­fer­ent today than it was dec­ades ago. Today, you can cre­ate and pub­lish many objects and get feed­back that allows you to choose favour­ites. These can then be brought to com­mer­cial platforms.

So the goal of my exper­i­ment is how I can eas­ily cre­ate a series of images and have them rated by an audi­ence. This is how I have done it:

There is a new algorithm that con­verts any text string into an image. And that neur­al net­work is called Dalle. And there is a ser­vice called Dalle mini where you can try it out for yourself.

I have simply entered “digit­al art” and have received nine vari­ations. Those I uploaded to Google Cloud’s Com­puter Vis­ion. The res­ult is a descrip­tion that I use as a title and labels that I use as hasht­ags. I add oth­er hasht­ags and the link to my web­site and tweet all of them one be one. 

With­in seconds, I get retweets and likes. The more, the high­er is the object’s pop­ular­ity. The most pop­u­lar ones I might want to offer at com­mer­cial plat­forms such as OpenSea.

Don’t get me wrong, this is no art yet, but an artist­ic work­flow that I would like to exper­i­ment with more in the future. Also, I’m not sure wheth­er I have any copy­right on those images from the sys­tem, how­ever, I might replace that sys­tem with my own and use these results. 

The case is an inter­est­ing exper­i­ment in digit­al art creation.
