Bangin’ Prompts
2023-04-08

Is this a joke? Obviously, yes.
Does it kind of make you think about things? I think so.

I’ve been pondering prompting a lot recently, and how sometimes it doesn’t matter if your prompt is short or way too long, has commas or parentheses, contains nonsense, or is even incredibly well thought out with detailed terminology – it almost doesn’t matter, because you WILL get some results that are interesting. AI is just really good at making an intriguing composition.

Folks who don’t like AI think you can bang your head on the keyboard and make “art” and do they have a point? Yea, kind of. You can (literally) smash a bunch of keys, spell things wrong, not actually know what a word you used actually means, and in the end you might get an image that is incredibly beautiful or surreal… but that’s not what we do, well, most of us.

Don’t get me wrong, I love silly gibberish prompting for fun, but the real work in AI is experimenting with structure, terms, and ideas to get something we envision, or explore things we can’t. I can bang my head on a keyboard, and I did, but control and exploration are what I am really after – and that does take a lot of time and skill. There’s no denying that.
