AWAY Collective is a coalition of artists working to bridge the divide between traditional, digital, and AI creators. Our work centers a multi-modal approach, utilizing new media technologies without sacrificing ethics in its distribution. We believe in accessible artmaking for people of all abilities, and seek to close the literacy divide between the early adopters and future users.

Hi! I'm Cad, which could be short for Cadmus (who was transformed into a dragon) or Cadaeic (who names the numbers of pi) or anything you'd like. I'm a transmasc Asian-Australian using image synthesis to illustrate fantasy stories, tabletop games and other flights of fancy, as well as to explore naval art history. I also occasionally tinker with code on the side, finding that AI art appeals to both the creative and the technical sides of my brain. It's been fun, though I primarily generate pictures of sailing ships and resplendently rainbow sailing ships!
I'm a developer/hobbyist that got a start with AI art in the Style Transfer/Deep Dream days and gained a special interest in ML in early middle school.
I am the founder of AWAY and general malcontent-around-town for the AI Art community as a whole. I have always been interested in the ability to visualize my dreams and imagination in a way that would not require me to use my hands or fingers very much - I am disabled, and use of my hands for anything more strenuous than typing is generally a non-starter. Ever since then it has been one large, amusing, slightly infuriating, but always joyous rollercoaster.
I had gotten into AI art relatively early on, and I have loved watching its rapid progression and I'm sure I'll love seeing what's next. I love mixing concepts, ideas, artists, styles and mediums and seeing what the little robot does with it.
I am a disabled trans woman who started with Wombo when it first started, and moved to Midjourney when I found out about that. AI tools let me express myself in ways I couldn't before due to disability.
