Utah’s vivid people and stunning scenes, created by specialized AI.


  • AI-generated images of Utah show bizarre creatures and surreal landscapes.
  • Utah potlucks are accurately rendered by AI, complete with food, decorations, and children running wild.

Artificial intelligence (AI) has been used to generate images of what Utah looks like, and the results are both bizarre and accurate. The author used AI platforms, Midjourney and ChatGPT, to create realistic scenes of Utah life. While Midjourney produced strange, surreal landscapes featuring red rocks and mythical creatures, ChatGPT accurately captured the essence of a typical Utah potluck with its images of food, decorations, and children running wild. The AI-generated scenes evoked nostalgia and familiarity, but also left the author feeling unnerved by AI’s capabilities.
