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.
The Creativity of Artificial Intelligence in Art
New technologies, especially in the field of artificial intelligence, are dynamic in transforming creative space. AI-enabled programs are rapidly contributing to areas such as architecture, music, the arts, science, and so on. The recent Christie’s auction on the Portrait of Edmond has transformed the contemporary perception of AI art, giving rise to questions related to the creativity involved in this art. This research paper acknowledges the persistent problem, “Can AI art be considered as being creative?” In this light, this study draws on the various applications of AI, varied attitudes on AI art, and the processes of generating AI art to establish an argument that AI is capable of achieving artistic creativity.
