Meet Gark from Mexico City!
Self-described as a creative child in an adult body, healing traumas and trying to enjoy life.
“Generative art is a new and effective way for me to express myself, it helps me feel complete,” Gark says.
She currently uses NightCafé, StarryAI, Dreamlike, DALL-E, and Playground to produce their work.
“I’ve learned that I still have passion in my heart, and I can focus on things that I’m interested in. Most importantly, I’ve learned to embrace my failures and patience,” she says.
Gark shares generative art has improved her life for the better.
“My insomnia is tolerable, and I’m happier in general,” she says. “For a clinical depressive woman, that is a big improvement!”
On her generative art, Gark wants people to know that “sometimes I can be funny, make a statement, or have a deeper meaning. I mostly do this for myself, but when I do something for someone else, I really put in a great effort for it to be beautiful, magical, and meaningful.”
The piece above is one Gark sees her reflection in. It’s one of the first images she made with DALL-E. And in time, she’s excited to grow with her craft.
“I’d like to learn to write better prompts, but I know I’ll learn with time and practice,” she says.
“Like I said, I do this mostly for myself,” Gark says. “My long-term goals are to heal myself, mostly. Maybe sell something at some point.”
We share this sentiment with Gark—the healing and therapeutic impact of expression has had a profound impact on our lives. We see it in these interviews, with other members of the community, and we’re excited to see how it might influence a positive future for many individuals.
“Art is powerful,” Gark adds. “Whether it’s traditional art or created in conjunction with artificial intelligence tools, as long as it has meaning to someone, it is art.”
This prompt is one of the first images Gark made (shared above). It’s a part of a song she wrote for her band.
Only noise, no answers from the void, too loud to understand. Encysted filth instead of skin. Tainted blood codes every tear. A shapeless creature still resists, it whispers and sighs. Despite it all, this shredded mess, is barely clinging to life.
We note—some of these words are banned in Midjourney, but we’d love for you to share in the comments below if you use this prompt and adjust it for those filters, without circumventing them of course.
