A curious, art house spelling bee nerd tickle amalgamation of an AI animation - a human machine collaboration.

AI is bad at drawing words. Ominously adorable. #aimfriende Stable Diffusion spelling ‘Machine Learning Baby’ as only Stable Diffusion can for five minutes. In other words, it doesn’t. #aiisbad. It should study the Aimltext. Of course, it has no idea this is the goal. Not yet.

There is a sort of #accidental #asmr sort of thing happening. Maybe it’s just me or the nature sounds. That frog thing really gets me. The dictators toward the end are a bit unsettling. I’m not sure what that’s about. Not in the prompts.
