Visual artist (and former Totally Dublin art director) James Kelleher has released Reflex, “ten views of the cataclysm” made using a text-to-image neural network.

“I’ve been using AI tools as part of my creative process for the past couple of years and it’s clear that this technology will cause – is causing – significant upheaval for artists and for the way we look at art. How big an upheaval though?

It’s not clear if we’re facing into the wrenching social tumult of a Gutenberg press or the more gentle revolution of a Photoshop 1.0.

There’s a little of that vertiginous what-comes-next dread in these landscapes, a bit of body horror (I’m incredibly squeamish about eyes), and a very generous helping of planetary catastrophe.”

Limited edition of 100 signed and numbered, €100
