How can artificial intelligence influence and expand our creative horizons?
The Electric Monk Show demonstrates AI's capabilities with presentations of large language models, AI hallucinations, speech synthesis, and GLSL-based procedural art. The narrative, mixed with a physical theater performance by Grace Bertuccelli-Booth and animation by Ben Samuels, encapsulates the transformation from AI apprehension to appreciation, reflecting the audience's potential journey in understanding AI as a tool in creative endeavors.
