What happens to our sense of agency when we rely on machines to generate creative output?​​​​​​​
My "Wesenheit" AI project questions the very nature of creativity.

A “Wesenheit” – german for “entity” – is defined as a thing with distinct and independent existence.

What is the philosophical impact of AI generated imagery tools like MidJourney on the process of creativity?
AI-generated imagery tools like MidJourney, DALL-E or Stable Diffusion are rapidly changing the way we approach the process of creativity. The impact of these tools is not just limited to the creative industry but also has significant philosophical implications. The very nature of creativity has been questioned, challenged, and redefined in the age of AI.

Wesenheit AI project by J. F. Novotny Photographer and Visual Artist

Questioning the very nature of creativity: the impact of AI-generated imagery tools on creativity raises questions about the relationship between humans and machines. As we become increasingly reliant on AI for creative output, it is essential to consider the ethical implications of this relationship. What role do humans play in the creative process when machines can produce work that appears to be creative?
