The current issue of the Journal of Interdisciplinary Image Studies Image (37/2023) features an article from the RHET AI Center on AI-based image generators. In their paper Fuzzy Ingenuity: Creative Potentials and Mechanics of Fuzziness in Processes of Image Creation with AI-Based Text-to-Image Generators, the authors Dr. Erwin Feyersinger, Lukas Kohmann and Michael Pelzer examine the creative potentials and mechanisms of fuzziness that arise in the creation of images using AI-based text-to-image generators. Different theoretical perspectives are discussed to make these mechanisms of fuzziness tangible.
These four images were created using Stable Diffusion and the title of the article "Fuzzy Ingenuity: Creative Potentials and Mechanics of Fuzziness in Processes of Image Creation with AI-Based Text-to-Image Generators" as a prompt.
This issue of Image emerged from the workshop Dall‑E, Midjourney, Stable Diffusion: Responses from Media Studies toward a "New Paradigm" of Image Production, and includes other papers dealing with AI image generators such as Dall‑E, Midjourney, and Stable Diffusion.
