I hope you had a great weekend.
Over the past week, EmProps launched a new way to distribute AI-generated art, where artists can release a “long-form” or a collection of AI artworks at once.
Although many galleries and marketplaces offer the possibility to release AI art on the blockchain, this is the first one that does it in a “long-form” fashion and openly (to many artists at the same time), where the artist creates the algorithm (in this case, prompt-based). The outputs are randomly generated from their parameter selection.
EmProps is still in Beta, so be aware that there are a few bugs here and there.
More AI art collections in a bit, but first, an announcement…
☎️ 1:1 Consultancy Sessions
I’ve received many requests for calls, feedback, and advice sessions from artists, creators, and project founders. Although I try to help and give feedback as much as possible, opening dedicated sessions brings a more structured and efficient way to connect and support you.
You can now book time to have a video call with me. I’m eager to support artists, founders, and collectors in the digital art space.
🎙Kaloh’s Podcast: Alejandro Cartagena and micol
Last week, Alejandro Cartagena told us the story behind his iconic Carpoolers collections, his early years as a fine art photographer, and how he is amassing the best NFT photography collection through Fellowship.
The guest for episode 16 will be micol, founder of Vertical Crypto, an art house for blockchain art, Proof of People, a festival for blockchain art and culture, and VC Residency, a cohort-based residency for digital artists.
Coming back to EmProps, here are three AI-based collections that grabbed my attention.
the artist's floor wallpapers by Clint Fulkerson
Abstract artist Clint Fulkerson released a self-explanatory AI collection - the artist’s floor wallpapers. I’m impressed by the high quality and diversity of the outputs (rare for an AI-based collection).
AI imagines famous generative artworks by Claus Wilke
I asked the AI to imagine famous (and some not so famous) generative artworks purely based on the artwork's title and the artist's name. The AI did the best it could, but some outputs are rather amusing.
This experiment shows us that some artworks have quite accurate descriptive titles and others less so. I also feel confident that the AI was not trained on any of these artworks.
Organic Aura by New in Town
New in Town’s Organic Aura project starts by generating images with code (using p5.js). This image is then transformed using the SDXL AI algorithm, culminating in creating the desired output, where the essence of nature's aura is revealed.
The collection is inspired by the skeletonization process, which naturally or chemically removes the fleshy part of the leaf, leaving behind the intricate network of vascular tissue.
Until next time,
