Based on the significant danger it poses to art, reality, and meaningful human labour, I oppose AI in all forms for creative work. This refusal will be practised and is not negotiable.

The proliferation of artificial imagery is undermining our dignity (for example, by “generating” and distorting human faces and forms). It poses a significant threat to the fundamental truths we all hold in common.

I promise to continue making exceptional work. I will strive to present a more meaningful alternative to our children, giving them a future that is true and beautiful, not false and compromised.

Every word and image I publish is made by myself.
I accept full responsibility for my work.
That will never change.
