Explorations in AI


Anna Atkins Makes Xerox Copies

My focus on using AI has been on how it interprets history when given inaccurate information, continuing that line of thinking I decided to begin inserting modern technologies into the 19th century to see how the AI would interpret that. This series was created on Midjourney using the prompt “Anna Atkins makes Xerox copies”. The AI knew Atkins made Cyanotypes of plants and knew I wanted ‘copies’ and so I ended up with a more literal interpretation for this prompt.
