AI Art is the Death of Creativity

AI-generated images are painful to look at and should not exist.

An image generated via AI of two puppies looking away.

Artists, actors and screenwriters are professionally trained to create and inspire. The use of AI to create images is a slap in the face to these actual artists. Anyone can download this software and ‘create’ images by simply typing in keywords and hoping for the best. 

The idea that it is okay to not pay a professional writer, artist or photographer and use AI to create art is not only cheap but proves that despite our world being fueled by art; the artist is never truly valued as the creator. Every building you walk into, the bathmats in your house and every piece of clothing you own is all art. It is all art that a real human has designed. 

Everything that is sought after the most and has the greatest impact on our society is art. Yet, we have come to the conclusion that creatives are not useful and can be replaced by a robot that sources from the internet, stealing from photographers and artist who upload their art online. 

When scrolling on TikTok or Instagram, you have likely come across a carousel of images that depict a certain topic, such as “Taylor Swift Albums as Pixar Movies” or the classic “Dark Fantasy Minecraft.” These clickable titles draw you in but contribute nothing new. The art itself is taken from something someone designed professionally, such as a video game or a movie poster. I know that random TikToks and Instagram reels don’t matter in the grand scheme of things, but what we fail to realize is that this technology will result in the loss of jobs for actual professional artists. With AI generated images becoming more and more common, companies may start to use it to create their branding to not hire a designer to save money. This not only puts designers out of jobs but devalues their work entirely.

Maybe it isn’t that big of a deal, but art is what gives life substance. The thought that the people who constantly create and work to perfect their craft are being pushed aside for a more economical, profitable option should scare you.

About the Contributor
Ashlyn Miller, Sports Editor
Ashlyn Miller is a junior at Robinson and the Sports Editor of Knight Writers. This is her second year on staff and first year as an editor. Miller's favorite part of journalism is taking photos of all of the sports at Robinson and improving her photography skills. "We don't exactly have press at Robinson so it's rewarding to me to take photos of people doing what they love," Miller said. Outside of the journalism room, Miller stays involved in school with an array of hobbies. She enjoys staying involved in school by participating in swimming, photography and orchestra. She enjoys playing the violin and loves learning new pieces. "If you're able to make the violin sound good, it's a such rewarding accomplishment for such a difficult instrument," Miller said. Miller also likes spending time with her dog in her past time. Out of cats or dogs, she instantaneously chose dogs. "I prefer dogs. I actually own a German Shepherd named Leia and she's the light of my life, but I have nothing against cats," Miller said. Prepared for the future, she plans to attend journalism school, preferably at Duke University and join their ROTC program.  Miller is passionate about media and sports although how competitive positions are. "I want to specialize in the media realm and possibly be a sports commentator for ESPN," Miller said. "I love watching, covering and even playing sports because of the environment that surrounds them and the gratification that comes with doing well." (Profile by Briana Garcia)
