AI art generators have exploded in the last couple of years. Known for their uncanny, and sometimes terrifying results, they’re increasingly drawing the attention of artists and non-artists alike for inspiration and to create explorative work.

Now the team behind one such platform – Artbreeder – has a new experiment: Artbreeder-Collages. And while the results are often bizarre, it’s totally addictive.

The original Artbreeder tool allows you to “edit the genes” of either your own images or those already uploaded to the site, or to “cross-breed” images together. The new Artbreeder-Collages, on the other hand, is a generative tool.

Currently in beta, it allows you to create images from scratch using, yes, a collage approach – with a little help from text prompts. Read on to learn more, or if you prefer to continue working in the traditional way, see our guide to the best graphic design software.

The motion for summary judgment, filed Thursday in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York by the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) and Durie Tangri LLP, explains that our Controlled Digital Lending (CDL) program is a lawful fair use that preserves traditional library lending in the digital world.

The brief explains how the Internet Archive is advancing the purposes of copyright law by furthering public access to knowledge and facilitating the creation of new creative and scholarly works.

The Internet Archive’s digital lending hasn’t cost the publishers one penny in revenues; in fact, concrete evidence shows that the Archive’s digital lending does not and will not harm the market for books.
