Independent Artists Are Fighting Back Against A.I. Image Generators With Innovative Online Protests, Richard Whiddington, δημοσίευση Artnet News [16/12/2022]Marilena Pateraki
When A.I.-generated images began appearing on the homepage of ArtStation in early December, its users protested. They announced their discontent with a blunt image of a stop sign that read: “No To A.I. Images”. Within a week, the picture had been uploaded thousands of times and began dominating the platform’s trending page.
The reasoning behind the protest is simple; ArtStation users don’t want a platform they use for sharing and networking purposes to support A.I. images that have been generated through the theft of artistic labor and creativity.
“I am really considering removing my art online from places such as Artstation,” Suzanne Helmigh, art director at Ghostfire Gaming, told her 43,000 Twitter followers. “If the point of creating art is lost, and all our work is good for is to be fed into a machine, to be abused and Frankensteined into some A.I. visuals.”
In response, the platform, known as a hub for game, film, and anime artists, defended its position and had moderators remove the anti-A.I. images. Users were enraged and continued posting their protests, some with the addendum “Round Two, You’re Not Listening”. By December 16, ArtStation had updated its A.I.-focused FAQ page, though it hadn’t exactly disavowed A.I. generators and their images.
