The Hermit | AI Art with Disco Diffusion
On AI Art
Having compiled a whole bunch of thoughts and notes on the ongoing AI debate I realised there was not point since Steven Zapata summed it all better then I could.
But I have to say that more than being ‘for’ or ‘against’, I am confused. I have not been using AI like most people — to produce money making content. In my practice, I use it as an inspiration machine, a creator of custom references. But even that seems a but odd given the run of events.
The question is should I be using this technology at all, even in the harmless manner that I am? Don’t know!
The Quest for Thumbnails
Last week was a bit loaded with work but I put together some descriptions for my trusted intern, Disco Diffusion, and we got on the Hermit card designs from my Tarot series like a horse with no name.
I like how they are shaping up in style. There is something mystic about the visual depiction so far. I think I had something similar in mind when I had started the project. I think I will start with defining the details a bit more sometime early next year. For now I should hire someone to write the Tarot descriptions.
‘The Hermit’ as found on Labyrinthos
The Hermit is a seeker for the knowledge that comes from within. A lonely wanderer in the path of the night, he searches for that which can only be gained with long periods of solitude – the inner voice. To hear it, he must disconnect from the crowds whose voices and desires threaten to overcome his own. He walks through the dark night of his unconscious, guided only by the low light of the northern star, with his destination being his home, his self.

You are currently contemplating that you need to be alone. Never be afraid to take this chance to reflect, as it could help you clear your mind of all the clutter that comes with everyday life. The Hermit may also refer to your effort in taking action that is authentic and aligned with your true self. You are perhaps searching your inner soul for guidance on what is right, and where your next steps are to be.
The hermit’s appearance in a reading can also denote the appearance of someone who will come to your life that will be your mentor.
