    Passes only

    Do you have what it takes to become a Prompt Designer? Based on the Rap Battle format, Prompt Battle is an event where people compete against each other using speech. AI-supported text-to-image software enables users to generate new complex photos, images, and illustrations out of thin air by typing in image descriptions, so-called prompts. Register at transmediale festival to sign up for the competition and demonstrate your prompt design skills. The audience will decide who will elicit the most surprising, disturbing or beautiful images from the latent space, and who will emerge as the winner.

    Due to illness, Sebastian Schmieg was not on-site.

    Florian Alexander Schmidt is a professor for conceptual design and media theory at the University of Applied Sciences HTW Dresden. He has a background in visual communication, did a PhD on the Crowdsourcing of Design at the RCA in London, and has been doing research on the economies of platform-based image production in various forms since 2006.
    Sebastian Schmieg investigates the algorithmic circulation of images, texts, and bodies. He creates playful interventions that penetrate the shiny surfaces of our networked society and explore the realities that lie behind them.
