The Design Generator, a Birkbeck-based research project, is an AI model trained on the V&A collection that automatically generates images of fictional design objects from text prompts. The AI tool aims to encourage creative learning and exploration of the defining characteristics of the key periods, styles and materials around which the V&A’s collection is organized. The project was completed in partnership with the V&A and is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council’s Capability for Collections funding programme.
