I just began playing with image generation via artificial intelligence. There are many apps out there, and the one that has me mesmerized is called Midjourney. Exploring this new medium of thought is certainly expanding my imaginative powers, as well as sparks of possibility, curiosity, wonder, and all the magical aspects of creation! Again, I am reminded of the power of whimsey in creativity. There is something so fun about the experimental process of typing in some text and watching images evolve before my eyes!
Midjourney is an independent research lab exploring new mediums of thought and expanding the imaginative powers of the human species.
Whatever medium, the fun of creation expands imaginative powers. Without fun, imagination is diminished. We just naturally have a creative momentum that is best fed by joy, and the magic is in the process. My wish for everyone is that they have an accessible joyful creative practice. My life purpose as an Aficionado of Imaginative Souls, Advocate of Unlimited Possibilities & Amusing Muse gets activated by every form of immersion into imagination. From the most ancient form of imaginative immersion (stories around the fire) to modern virtual reality games, we are entering another world of our making.
Typos are an imaginative delight! This is “Wildflower Wonder Moo” as I missed the “n” in moon!
Art generated by artificial intelligence, futures envisioned in our dreamscapes, and emerging biotechnology are all extensions of human imagination. Humankind has always had a drive to bring what is in the mind outside and in front of our eyes! The creative process itself, bringing thoughts and visions into this three-dimensional space we occupy is fascinating to me! And it’s a big process. Artificial intelligence makes it look so easy!
And this one was supposed to be “6 of Cups Enchanted Faerie Tea Party” based on a tarot card I love, but alas, instead I’d accidentally typed in “caps” 😆
There is such a magical sense of instant gratification when entering text and then seeing it’s visual representation just moments later. There is a real wow-factor! It also makes me suddenly very aware that in this dimension, we are lucky our imaginings take longer to come into existence. What if everything we imagined sprung into existence mere moments after thinking it?
