"The Map Becomes The Territory"

...is an entirely AI-made ultra short film wherein I summoned the spirit, look & voice of of Marshall McLuhan to rewrite Borges' "On Exactitude in Science"

this was shown first at Promptopia in NYC and @theculturedao's AI film festival in SF... Borges' "On Exactitude in Science" is an extremely short short story, famous for its quick exploration of the famous map - territory relation: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Map%E2%80…

i felt that there was a curious vector between
map <> territory & media <> message

so I let GPT-3 explore it..

using fiction as malware is the most Neal Stephenson thing ever

if asked directly about itself, ChatGPT will mostly respond with tame company lines

attempting to "break the fourth wall" using fictional instructions will trigger content warnings now

what a time to be alive it's clearly more lucid / creative / intelligent than davinci-002/003, but interestingly repetitive, which may be a function of its rapidly updated safety measures

#StableDiffusion2 - I was initially part of the "more like 0.2"🤔 camp, but don't judge before trying it w/ negative prompts!

E. g. for photos, add sth like "oversaturated, ugly, 3d, render, cartoon, grain, low-res, kitsch" as neg prompts: overall 2.0 def requires more sophisticated prompts - latent space "sweet spots" peak MUCH higher than in 1.5, but are trickier to find

I like synths so here are some fictional synths made with AI synths 🎹

1. The CRANIUM3000

86B FM operators / 666 LFOs - its built-in speakers aren't the best, use the L/R outputs 🔊

2. The CRUCLA (Tropical Build)

An electroacoustic semi-modular setup using exoskeletal vibrations to create sounds 🔊

Midjourney V4 is an incredible achievement - haven't been this excited about the AI synth space in like 2-3 weeks 😅

so many worlds to explore and discover

this @Poolsuite model takes any tame prompt into endless hypersummer territory a fine-tune makes it much easier to snap and stay in a certain style, and get good results with relatively simple prompts

thread on my process of getting GPT-3 to write a script to integrate #stablediffusion into google sheets, unlocking a function "stable()" that lets you gen images in sheets

GPT3 had already written an integration for itself for sheets, so I figured this should be doable, too GPT-3 won't just mek app, it needs context

wanted to use @replicatehq's API for this, so as a first step I pasted their API documentation into GPT-3, along with: "The following is the documentation for calling the Replicate API:"

<FULL Documentation>

HOLOSHEET, story edition!

built a google sheet powered by GPT-3 and #stablediffusion that outputs full stories, with images!

you input a prompt & the AIs generate story, visuals and a title

in any style you want..

here's "The wizard approached the abyss"

a few seconds later: it's a PoC, so the stories are simple, but in return you can do any world...don't like Tolkien? How about Star Trek?

Here's what it outputs for:

"Red Alert! The Captain gasps awake..."
- in the style of Star Trek

all gpt-3 + stable within a single google sheet:

"Prompt Explorer" - a GPT-3 powered google sheet that lets you explore the "narrative neighbourhood" of any prompt:

eg "abandoned futuristic colony" will output detailed MJ/SD ready prompts for:

1. what's above (drone view)? 🚁
2. what's inside? 🔦
3. what's nearby? 🧭 drone view / fly above & the gpt-3 generated prompt

no more googling 😅

"Narrative APIs" for composable gaming..?

a fun idea in crypto gaming is composability: take your game assets into other worlds

modulo desirability (personally think it'd be fun), how?

hard-coded standards seem unrealistic..

what if both games ran on GPT-3 tho? ImageImageImage The "prompt maximalist" vision of composable gaming:

take any game worlds, e. g. @chain_runners and @lootproject

if both are governed by a world building prompt, (establishing their lore & physics), you could easily bridge any asset...

"lore inpainting" > narrative APIs Image

Midjourney, DALL-E & SD images are incred, but the real 🤯 is when you realize you can make films with them

e.g. @SALT_VERSE, my 100%-AI film experiment

it all started with this MJ image, which instantly pulled me into a 70s sci-fi world - wtf is this place??

I had to go in 🫡 I "played" Midjourney to go a littler deeper into these mines - (many ppl use it like that, like a game!)

and damn, did I find some strange strange down there

a resource curse, of sorts?

I fired up DaVinci Resolve (free video editor) to create a trailer of "what I had seen"...

Humans of Midjourney '--testp' / GPT-3

I want to study to become a lawyer. But my mom says that’s not a realistic goal. She says: ‘You have to be realistic. You’re not going to be president, you’re not going to be a lawyer.’ I tell her: ‘I can be anything' Image Humans of Midjourney / GPT-3

'Some people say I'm not real, but what do they know? I'm the one who's living my life. I'm the one who knows what I want. And I'm not going to let anyone tell me otherwise.' Image

10k prompts as the new "10k hours"..🤔

..but prompts as a UI paradigm may be short-lived on our way to thoughts2anything?

I bet you could already measure increased connectome between a prompter's Broca's area and their visual cortex - @neuralink get in there...💉🧠 Image if prompts-as-UI are the "terminal" paradigm, what's the mouse?

modulo neuralink, "pro" promptoors may stay in "terminal" mode, but casual users might get a suggestive auto-complete like interface

DALL-E 2 vs Midjourney vs StableDiffusion mega thread: photography, illustration, painters, abstract

these image synths are like instruments - it's amazing we'll get so many of them, each with a unique "sound" 🤯

rules: same prompt, 1:1 aspect ratio, no living artists "Beatles lego set, catalogue photograph"

funny how this immediately also pulls 60s color schemes
