My Notes

Traditionally, alienation in art has been associated with the separation of the artist from their work or the audience's disconnection from the artist's expression. However, AI introduces a new layer of alienation by removing the human artist's direct hand in the creation process. This shift raises questions about the authenticity of creative expression and the role of human emotion and experience in art. On one hand, AI-driven art could be seen as exacerbating alienation, as it further distances the creative process from human agency and emotional input. On the other hand, it can be argued that AI democratizes art creation, reducing alienation by enabling broader participation in artistic expression, regardless of traditional skill sets.
