Lore Machine x Rime of the Ancient Mariner Part 1
An AI-Generated Comic of the Greatest Sea Adventure Ever Told
The Rime of the Ancient Mariner by Samuel Taylor Coleridge is my favorite long-form poem. It tells the tale of a ship, its crew and the disasters that befall them at sea. I used the poem’s public domain text as my corpus for an AI-generated comic book.
I’ve been playing around with different NLTK models and how they might inform batches of text-to-image prompts and how these prompts in amalgam might bring stories to life. This is the result of one of those experiments. I’ll be posting The Rime of the Ancient Mariner in seven parts then consolidating into something more badass than a voiced over Substack post.
There’s lots of room for improvement here, like an AI voice that can read old English me thinks 🤔. If you have ideas for how to elevate this format, hit me up! - firstname.lastname@example.org.
For now though, just hit the VO button up top, click the first image, and descend into The Rime of the Ancient Mariner...
