Funny Not Funny: Volume 1

1 rating

How do machines see the world? To what (and from what) do they ascribe meaning? Do they dream of electric sheep, or destroying the human race?

Funny Not Funny is an artificial comic strip mostly made by robots for humans. It was written and drawn by generative algorithms, with inspirational prompts from the author, Jason Theodor, who then put the comics together.

Volume One not only asks, "What is funny?" but also, "What is art itself?" In a time where generative algorithms can draw realistic and artistic elements in mere seconds—'borrowing' the styles of every artist, genre, style, and medium that exists on the internet—what place does the artist take? Is this progress, or just a sick joke?

Funny Not Funny is an experiment in brand new territory, leaving it up to you to decide if the work amuses or offends. Each entry is an exploration of a single word, or theme, from IMMORTALITY to HAVOC. It is a collaboration between human intent and machine interpretation. It is an electronic funhouse mirror reflecting our collective content back at us.

Enjoy!
