Now, the obvious question this raises is: is it still art. The generated images are not very bad or very un-artistic. One thing is striking, though. The software also transforms Case’s signature, as if it were an integral part of the scene depicted. It does transform it into characters – most of the time – but it does not ‘understand’ that it is a signature.
Case’s conclusion, so far, is that these transformed images can be a helpful tool for artists who want to generate ideas based on an original artwork.
