I Prompt the Body Electric
Turning Ray Bradbury titles into art
In the spirit of my Do AI’s Dream of Electric Sheep post last month, here’s another collection of AI art based on prompts involving the rather poetic titles of science fiction books. This time, instead of Philip K. Dick, Ray Bradbury provides the titles.
Above, that’s Midjourney’s take on I Sing the Body Electric, done (very loosely) in the style of painter Ed Paschke.
Here’s another take on that title, this time in a magic realism style.
Here’s Something Wicked This Way Comes. I cheated a little and added the word “circus” to the prompt so Midjourney would provide us with some sort of wicked carnival vibe.
The first two are supposed to be done in the style of expressionist painter George Grosz; the third is supposed to be a circus poster. So Midjourney failed a bit in capturing the styles, but it still gave us some creepy pics.
Here’s The Machineries of Joy, in a magic realism style.
Here’s The Halloween Tree, which Midjourney took fairly literally:
Here’s The Day It Rained Forever in the styles of Magritte and Dali. (Loosely.)
I tried to do The Illustrated Man, but Midjourney seemed to completely misunderstand the assignment. Still, one of the pictures turned out kind of cool anyway.
Coming soon: Harlan Ellison and more Philip K. Dick.
