At The New Real, we want to reflect and represent those at the forefront of art and AI – and to work with them to develop actionable strategies and signposts for practitioners.

Here Eoghan O’Keeffe, an artist and toolmaker, shares with us the key features and capabilities artists are looking for in AI tools as these technologies move forward.

We wanted to know: Looking beyond the text prompt, what do artists want to see from a new generation of tools? How can we give human artists greater agency in co-creation with AI? How can artists create works based on rich understanding of models? And how important is it that tools are legible, interpretable, or configurable?
