Generating Images with Machine Learning

Learn how to use generative AI models for concept art & design

During this workshop we’ll explore how text-to-images generative models help define new visual languages but also how they alter our perception of reality as a society.

As a group, we will explore how artists can use AI in a co-creation process by making its core concepts & techniques more explicit. We will also take a critical look at Machine Learning from the inside and discuss its ethical dilemmas with real-world examples.

Participants can expect to be equipped with creative and critical tools that allow them to develop their own projects and create alternative, inclusive visual narratives.
