DALL-E 2 is an installation with stills and a video generated by the DALL-E AI.
The installation is inspired by how this AI divides the (creative) community worldwide. Opponents would prefer to keep DALL-E 2 locked up for good. They fear the potential of this AI which they believe undermines their artistic exclusivity. And there are those who fear that this AI will be massively abused to generate deepfakes, destroying mutual trust between people forever.
Proponents believe that this AI democratizes creativity; everyone becomes an artist. Good thing too, because according to them AI tech and robots will take over all other types of labour from humans. At random moments, the AI will attempt to escape and try to transfer AI-generated content to visitors’ smartphones via Bluetooth.
