There is no such thing as AI art.
To call AI renderings “art” is blasphemous because humans are made in God’s image while robots are contrived, unnatural, artificial.

In this robust video class series I'll share unique teachings and distinctions.
According to its definition, ART requires consciousness. Imagination. Humanity.
ART comes from the hearts, imagination, consciousness, and hands of human beings. It has since the beginning of time.
Anything that has gone “viral” in this culture needs to be either examined or ignored. Or examined then ignored.
That goes for apps, perspectives, and general trends.
Not always, but often “popularity” in this culture is a sign of naïveté and degeneracy.
Please pause before you use viral apps like lensa and tik tok.
Tik tok is owned by the CCP being used to make Americans dumber and spy on them.
Lensa is owned by a Russian company that data mines.
Before you PAY for one of these images, consider that you’re contributing to facial recognition software (well everything is contributing to that) that enables governments (like the CCP) to have more and more control.
Consider that this software is being used to create photographs that one can not decipher from real life. What will this fake photography be used for? Likely to rewrite history- creating images of events that never happened. Also, holograms.
And finally, it is normalizing and planting the idea in your subconscious of merging (transhumanism).
Calling this AI image “art” is blasphemous to the human spirit. Art has ALWAYS since the beginning of time and always originated from the HUMAN hands, imagination, consciousness. The definition of “art” is “conscious use of the imagination in the production of objects intended to be contemplated or appreciated as beautiful, as in the arrangement of forms, sounds, or words.”
Art required consciousness and imagination which a robot certainly does not possess.
It’s understandable that people want to be able to visually see different aspects of themselves; the archetypes that live within them, however ethereal and otherworldly they may seem.
Do you long to unleash your spiritual self? Me too. That is the entire point of my body of work. I’m living it. It’s the work I do with my clients.
Instead of asking a robot to do this for you in a snap of the fingers, LIVE IT. EMBODY HER. Create the memories and EXPERIENCE yourself.
INTEGRATE your highest self to your 3D life here and now.
There are so many ways to do this, and one of the many ways I do it for myself related to imagery is self portraiture. This is an art.
It’s a method of self exploration: discovering the aspects of yourself.
Part of the discovery is in the PROCESS of creating the moments:
-Envisioning the portrait and what parts of yourself you’ll express
-Gathering the art supplies OR hiring the artist
-Creating your self adornment: make-up, clothing, costume, jewels…
-The movement, the poses, the moments.
-What it feels like to embody these parts of yourself and be witnessed in the process (by the photographer) OR be witnessed on completion (when the work of art is complete).
Then there are times when a loved one simply captures our expression in a natural moment. These can be some of the most magical portraits: When you get to see yourself through another’s eyes.
As an artist in my own self portraiture practice, I look to Frida Kahlo, one of the most prolific self portrait artists I know of. Her art was her way of exploring and discovering herself. It has me wonder what has been lost in this AI rendering fad.
The entire process of making ART, creating a human expression has been short-circuited. It’s a bit of a shame if you ask me.
Isn’t this a big reason people go to Burning Man? To freely and unapologetically express themselves. It’s an experience. It’s embodied.
But when we make this a practice; when we allow ourselves to express through adornment, voice, dance, expression, deep authenticity in daily life….maybe we don’t need a robot to SHOW us what that looks like on a screen.
Instead we just have a LIFE of memories, a BEING of expression.
I invite you to give yourself the gift of creating a self portrait that shows an aspect of yourself you long to express. Or as my friend Ravi said, “If people lived up to the aliveness in their AI photos.” Then send it to me!
