Do you want it? A place where all potential creative tools are collected? With direct links and short explanations — for you to decide where to start your art? Well, here it is — an ongoing index of all creative uses of AI. At least those being covered by Merzazine. So without boring introductions…
Memes are wonderful. Running on a subliminal level of our perception, they trigger our emotions by addressing various cultural artifacts, crazily mixing them, even bringing entirely new meanings of well-known ideas.
Neuropsychologist N.K.Humphry, and Ethnologist Richard Dawkins (coined the term “meme” in his book “The Selfish Gene”), even supposed that memes should be considered

DADA, Surrealism, and AI generative networks have many similarities. They evolved in the 10-20ies (1910-20ies vs. 2010-20ies). They mixed old discredited culture into something new, fresh, and unique. They disrupted the traditions and antiquated concepts of our civilization. They re-interpreted the past and created new realities.
One year ago, in January 2020 I wrote an essay about this Demiurgian capability of Artificial Intelligence:
It’s the 5th of January 2021, and OpenAI reports back already with another AI breakthrough. 2020 they impacted the AI world at least with two Milestones: GPT-3, a powerful Natural Language Processing model, and a music generator JukeBox.
Now a new star arises on the horizon of a generative AI approach: DALL-E. …
The year 2020 was a weird one. Our grandchildren will ask us, “How did you get through it all?”. But if you ask me right now, my year 2020 was under a star of continuous discovery of Artificial Intelligence as a Creative Instance. I’ve been studying it very closely, and here are two introductory insights I’ve come to understand over this year:
Usually, my year in review consists of various highlights of works other people did. But this time, I collected the rest of the last year’s vanity (sorry, I just need it right now) and would like to show what is possible with AI: All works are done by me. …
