A New Art medium? By Chrystal Allen-O'Jon

According to Artland Magazine (magazine.artland.com), "To create AI-generated art, artists use AI as a creative tool and work with algorithms to set up specific rules through which machines analyze thousands of images to comprehend a particular creation process, like a specific style or aesthetic. The algorithms then generate novel forms, shapes, figures, and patterns to produce new works."
