My self-initiated brief asked to find out if AI is capable of visual creativity. With the accelerating developments in AI, I wanted to research whether AI has created any visual art that could be considered creative.
I researched past and current visual AI projects, surveyed creatives on what creativity means, and brought these together to find out if any AI could be considered creative.
There have been a wide variety of AI projects creating artwork through many different methods and for different reasons. Many designers found these artificial visuals creative when presented, however when it was revealed to be AI made, many retracted their claim of creativity.
The conclusion was that many AIs are very skilled at creating visual art, but many people will resist calling it creative just because it was an AI that made it.
