AI and Ghosts

“What’s with the spooky images?”

I’ve been experimenting with AI generated images. You tell the computer what you want it to create and it spits out a number of alternatives. Ric is looking over my shoulder.

I shrug, not really knowing how to reply. At my age, with my mother contemplating death, many ghosts of the past linger – mine, hers, my siblings’.

My cue to the AI app was “rickety houses”. The house needed a child, so I asked for a child skipping. Old houses have spectres. Couldn’t leave him out.

Maybe he is death, the rickety old house my mother’s failing body, and the child the one who is trying to remain optimistic in the midst of all this.

If you want to get analytical about it.

What do you see?

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

  1. The child’s exuberance takes center stage … and easy to visualize my inner child skipping through a similar scene at the now-falling-apart house my grandparents lived in. Somehow I find the light as moon and comforting.
    I’m intrigued by AI images … have not tried it yet … what app are you using?

    1. I’m not passing judgment yet. It has been entertaining, for sure. This image is the combination of three different images, so still needs a creative touch.
