Holiday reviews inspire postcards from hell in nightmarish DALL-E 2 project

AI art generators are a controversial new creative tool, and many are unsure about what role they'll come to play. But sometimes a fun creative experiment comes along that seems like just the thing they can serve for. 

Skimming through TripAdvisor reviews can be enough to out anyone off travel forever. Almost every destination seems to have at least a couple of scathing reviews that make it sound like hell on Earth. But what if the place really was that bad? Well, someone's used AI to show what some popular tourist destinations would look like according to their worst write ups, and they look bad (unsure of how the technology works? See our guide to how to use DALL-E 2).
