MARGARET MURPHY: RE: ROAD TRIP
2-13 NOVEMBER 2023
"Many folks may ask me why I do not train an AI on my own images. For me, it’s about the element of the unexpected that is akin to photographing on the road. The element of chance, thanks primarily to the nature of AI generation without explicit knowledge of the data sets Midjourney is trained on, felt like the unexpected photographic encounters of my road trips, often impossible to recreate. The thrill of an image revealing itself was familiar, and I embraced it."
– Margaret Murphy
