My Dinner with Van Gogh

With AI, everyone can participate in what is potentially the greatest flowering of human creativity in history — in all fields, from art to music, writing, science, and more.

Although I have a background in photography, I have no formal training in graphic arts. I have discovered that researching and working with the visual art tools of AI is both exhilarating and mind-expanding.

My visual and text conversations with the AIs are interactive, introspective, and entertaining. By directing their progress, I can access my own conscious and subconscious thoughts, emotions, and feelings in ways I never imagined possible.

The result is unique personal art — the expression of my internal mental states. And anyone can do it, even if you can’t draw a circle or know what a paintbrush is for.

All it takes is the willingness to learn and thoughts to explore — to step out of the comfort of our warm caves and into the light and opportunity of our vast and beckoning future. Every day, millions of people from around the world are signing up for their personal artistic expeditions. How about you?
