When I first started seeing AI art posted on Instagram my first thought was "I wonder how Andy Warhol would feel about this?"

I'm still salty we have to differentiate between "traditional" artists and, basically, the rest, because computers have made the use of pencils and paint and clay as mediums freakishly old-fashioned. To me, this entire AI debate is like debating how someone is going to use a hammer. It's a tool. Am I personally going to use it? No. Might it be used as an aid for someone with disabilities? Sure it could. I think we tend to get hung-up on doomsday scenarios, when all this is, is the photograph replacing lifelike paintings. Artists adapted. Because we must.
