Embracing Liminality: Music, Art, and Expression in the Age of Artificial Intelligence
Great article! As a hobbyist artist, when it first hit me that text-to-image tools like Midjourney adversely affect professional artists, I felt compelled to stop playing with them. And while I haven’t changed my mind about the obviousness of that harm and await solutions to enable a fair use of, as you write, this liminal space, two thoughts followed: a) these are, in one sense, simply new creative tools that anyone can use to improve their own works of art or express creativity and b) non-AI art is now more unique. I’m now more compelled to paint and draw and get messy.
Does it seem like the improvements have gotten more iterative, and less revolutionary?
