But is it art?
How much would you pay for a one-off, original artwork, framed and shipped? If you answered “As much as $119”, then I’ve got some good news for you: The AI Gallery will ship you an original 22×22″ framed canvas artwork of your choice, simply by removing the cost of those pesky artists and replacing it with the machine. Sure, it’s controversial, but the AI Gallery has cleverly made the point that the controversy is the art. “AI generated art is one heck of a conversation starter,” the AI-sounding video voiceover informs us. “By hanging one in your house, you guarantee philosophical debates with your friends.” (Particularly your starving artist friends.)
