in collaboration with The Harvard Advocate
AI Mag is a fully AI-generated literary magazine that seeks to challenge the Harvard community’s – and the world’s – conception of what constitutes art and art-making. Through developing a web interface and fine-tuning large generative machine learning models, we enable students across campus to create works of literature and art using AI. This project explores questions about the nature of art, artist, and meaning: Is AI art real art? Who is the creator of AI art? Are intention and effort crucial to the value of art? Beyond examining the human + AI creative process, AI Mag itself explores the interplay between the traditional, elite practices of old-school literary magazines and the open-source, accessible perspectives the AI art community.
