"Does it spark joy?" Was the question Marie Kondo asked when sorting a pile of stuff in ones bedroom.Co-creating with A.I. feels similar. It gives infinite results and one sorts them out, tediously, patiently, one "joy" at a time. Maybe that's what we do anyways as designers: reality just throws infinite content at us and we curate, we choose, we mix, we adapt, we decide and then we build and turn the results to reality. Maybe what bothers us so much with A.I. is that it challenges us, it tell us that design does not stop at the image, at concept, but it spans until reality, until we make it happen with every piece of collective pain (and joy) this brings when we confront together this very reality. A.I. stops at making, when the parameters of the real world are just too much, when production makes you choose, when materials and your skin tells you something the computer cannot compute. This is what makes me particularly excited about @fab.pub, empowering people to make and to materialise their co-created dreams, building bridges between digital and physical. Yes Authorship, I.P., old notions of the "creator" will all be challenged and changed, just like samples, D.J. and mp3 changed music, but isn't nature already a little bit like that? Aren't designers physical d.j. and isn't nature mutating till it works? Image generated through many many #midjourney prompts "Eco-Parametric house by Mamou-Mani". And thanks @chrisprecht for the rabbit hole lol. ... See MoreSee Less
