"Many folks may ask me why I do not train an AI on my own images. For me, it’s about the element of the unexpected that is akin to photographing on the road. The element of chance, thanks primarily to the nature of AI generation without explicit knowledge of the data sets Midjourney is trained on, felt like the unexpected photographic encounters of my road trips, often impossible to recreate. The thrill of an image revealing itself was familiar, and I embraced it."

– Margaret Murphy

RE: ROAD TRIP by Margaret Murphy is a series of 150 AI-generated images reimagining the historically influential photographic genre of the road trip through the perspective of the contemporary female gaze. Murphy considers how this revered category has shaped and defined contemporary fine art photography using style influences, including artists such as Stephen Shore, Ed Ruscha, and Joel Sternfeld.

David Campany writes in his essay from THE OPEN ROAD: PHOTOGRAPHY AND THE AMERICAN ROAD TRIP that photographing by car represented a personal and creative freedom, made possible by the availability of both the automobile and the camera through technical and industrial development in the mid-twentieth century. Murphy’s series posits if and how text-to-image AI will do the same now.

"RE: ROAD TRIP is informed by the history of art that I am so passionate about, my love of technology as self-expression, and the experiences I’ve had as a young artist living her life. I think that’s what every road trip project should strive for, camera or computer-made."
