On August 1st, it all started with one prim, a texture and an idea for my 21st world On Kitely – Virtual Worlds, completely inspired by the enormous quantity of AI Art,
Dale Innis was producing.
Dale had been dabbling with AI Art programs for months and the results were interesting, at times creepy and unsettling… but this new program, *MidJourney, was absolutely amazing!! (more about the program at the end)
I was moved to create spaces and divide up his art into genres that could be enjoyed in immersive appropriate places. I am so happy he loved the idea and very much got into even building a few galleries, himself.
All paths lead to somewhere..Pick one and see where it takes you:)
Maybe hang out at a Hippie Campsite, see some Psychedelic Art and listen
to The Youngbloods.
*Disclaimer, an AI has never had a psychedelic experience….and its art demonstrates that….but it’s colorful:)
You might be into beautiful women with snakes…believe me there is something for everyone!!
Have you ever felt like you wanted to dance like a snake, while spinning around and listening to Lana Lubnany’s hypnotic charmer voice sing, “The Snake” in English/Arabic..
You can do it here at Snake Clan!! (Video has sound)
If you enjoy Retro 40’s music and 40’s 50’s Modernist Art..,.Come to the Hotsy Totsy Club:)
and immerse in the ambience!
Or, find a cozy booth and whisper your secrets over cocktails and smoke
We have Art Nouveau.…
Or…maybe Art Deco is more your style…
Almost every Club-like venue, has a Dance Ball and appropriate music
Surreal AI Art displayed in a minimalist gallery by Dale
Goth is (of course) full of dark woods and moving images and is a real experience to traverse
Black clouds constantly move over the projected images and it is mesmerizing to sit and watch
this changing wall. Please watch the video and turn on sound.
The music is The Dead Can Dance by Indus!
For those who love Black & White…The Monochrome section is very beautiful.
There is also a movie playing called “Devolution” where some horses de-evolve into something…very unhorse-like. The process is fascinating and the music is Satie:)
Is anyone ready yet, to make an avatar and come see all this first hand? I am happy to show you how:) All the Art found here is full permission and can be copied and taken with you.
This is just a small taste of what you will find if you visit. This article has already gotten too long, but I just want to share with you, the joy of being able to experience it first hand. My joy lies in being able to create something like this, to curate, the incredible Art that Dale is producing with the MidJourney program.

Last but not least, turn up your sound and enjoy the finished pounding surf of Seascapes…
An octopus moved in as I was finishing:) Video has sound
MidJourney is an AI system that allows anyone to create artistic images of nearly any kind, just by typing words. A number of these have sprung up lately, based on some recent amazing advances in technology; MidJourney is Dale’s favorite. All of the images in all the various genres around the sim were created by Dale in MidJourney, by choosing words and various system options, and picking the good ones. You can try out MidJourney yourself (the first few dozen are free!) at http://midjourney.com/ ; be warned that the interface is via Discord right now, so it’s not really easy to use.
