Hopefully by now, you’ve already initiated your own content creation, experimenting with some of the creative building blocks when working with generative AI content. You’ve learned about reconsidering AI-generated content as prototypes and how AI are powerful prototyping machines. You’ve also learned about different compositional forms that are possible with AI generated content, how content is highly informed by text prompts, and how you can mash different ones together. This chapter deals with the unexpected and the awkward content that AI offers us, challenging our inclination to compare what they generate to some type of human-created standard. Some of the most interesting and bizarre features that come with any standard generative AI model can inspire your artistic creation.
