Experiment:
Painting over a very loose and rough Dall-E AI automated output.

This opens many questions, like:

Is this still an Ailantd work?
What would be the point where the human input/transform would make this still human made?
Have curated AIs its own syles?
...and many more.

Hello @marge and welcome to mograph.social.

As you may be new to Mastodon here's a quick reference guide:

Please post an introduction to tell a bit about you and add a profile picture when you can.
We tend to actually consider "users" as people here on the Fediverse, so it helps a lot getting to know you a bit.

Hit me up if you have any questions.

Have fun!

I'll be running a 3-day professional development masterclass (in person) exploring philosophy, theory and practical use of open source technologies for artists at Leitrim Sculpture Centre, Ireland, in October 2022. Very limited numbers!

// Tonight's Album // Jazz is Dead 12 - Jean Carne

jazzisdead.bandcamp.com/album/

One of my favourites actually. I love the 70s albums on the Black Jazz Records label from organist Doug Carne and his wife Jean, delightful singer. This new volume of the Jazz is Dead series was a nice surprise, and it's quite good, as well.

One of the best decisions I made this year is to buy and start reading "Extra Bold – A Feminist, Inclusive, Anti-racist, Nonbinary Field Guide for Graphic Designers".

From the book:

"Creating a more just world requires struggle and debate.
Over time, securing rights for some people has ended up excluding others. Inclusive design is created by people with varied identities, backgrounds, and abilities."

I'm a writer from germany, programming since nearly 40 years. For me, programming is a kind of writing. Especially I'm interested in kinetic typography, which I do with my own software. At the moment I work on my own programming language (some kind of Forth) to do the animations. The manual (German) you can find at: prolysarik.de/lysa_handbuch.pd

// Album of the Day // Flock - (by) Flock

An incredible improvisational session by some very talented musicians. I'm always liking these electronic instruments mixed up into the more traditional jazz instrumentation, kinda like Nala Sinephro.

These are great times for music indeed, so much good new stuff out there.

A reminder that Mastodon and the Fediverse do NOT use cryptocurrency, blockchains, NFTs, tokens, coins, mining, web3 or anything like that.

Masto and the Fedi run on traditional servers and use a sustainable network federation model somewhat similar to e-mail (that's why Fediverse addresses look similar to e-mail addresses).

Also a reminder there are no venture capital firms or other investors either. No one owns the network, each server is independent. Masto and Fedi server running costs are paid by their owners, sometimes with donations from users.

No one is getting rich from the Fediverse, it is all volunteers with some getting donations and a few getting modest grants from foundations. Please remember this when you interact with admins or developers.

(There might be some individual users who post about cryptocurrency/blockchain, but the infrastructure this place runs on doesn't use it at all.)

Tl:dr - Decentralisation does NOT mean cryptocurrency/blockchain

Wait why does this work so well?

I can actually focus on it rather than having g to reread like 3 times.

@kadin I think #matrix is #federated so should count, @stux has a matrix server I joined from the #SDF matrix. I wish #XMPP took off as well, Cisco #Jabber uses a bastardized version of it and my old job used jabber. I don't think Signal is #decentralized/federated though
