I love the idea of "secret" or "occult" art, to draw a line between one's creative private and public life.

As an artist myself I'm still negotiating how AI will serve me. Because the physical senses are like a cigarette, they act as a filter between the imagination and reality. AI is only as useful as the physical data it's fed. But creativity is an immeasurable playing field that we still don't have all the answers to.

What keeps me sober is knowing that whether one is original or not, the world will still not care because people are comfortable with the familiar and afraid of the new. Whatever originality exists out there or within us, The Matrix won't take it kindly.

But for now, the role that AI will serve for me is ideating abstract concepts and doing color and value work for my ink drawings.
