AI Illustrates Goodnight Moon

Goodnight Moon is a bestselling children's book that is supposed to be soothing for young children, but some parents found it creepy. The book was written in 1947, but somehow I never heard of it until about ten years ago, when my kids were already teenagers. I suppose my parents found it too simplistic. They only bought me books they liked, which meant all of Dr. Seuss.  

Joris Bax used the text-to-image artificial intelligence program Midjourney to generate illustrations for the book. The collection was so creepy he had to use a voice changer and a creepy soundtrack behind them. The result is a real nightmare that no child should have to endure. (via reddit)
