1. Rules for generative art

    "Sol LeWitt was an artist. A very clever one at that. At some point, he questioned the value of art that was “created” by one hand – the artist. Instead of creating art – the output. He created the input – the rules. So his art became sets of rules by which his draftsmen used as a basis to create his art. Genius. [..] The rules or the “system” are the art. It’s computational art without computers."

  2. In a blinding flash of inspiration, the other day I realized that ‘interactive’ anything is the wrong word. Interactive makes you imagine people sitting with their hands on controls, some kind of gamelike thing. The right word is ‘unfinished.’ Think of cultural products, or art works, or the people who use them even, as being unfinished. Permanently unfinished

  11. This paper argues that to create ‘generative’ systems is a rigorous and intricate procedure. Moreover, the output from generative systems should not be valued simply as an endless, infinite series of resources but as a system. To have a machine write poetry for ten years would not generate creative music, but the process of getting the machine to do so would certainly register an advanced form of creativity.

  13. Ben Weiner’s immaculately hyper-realistic canvases and films precisely capture the essence of their subject: paint itself.
“My process derives from my interest in medium specificity, a practice in which art analyzes the means of its own creation”.
“I am interested in the way a microscopic view allows a person an intimate knowledge of the workings of a subject, while simultaneously alienating them from their normal experience of that subject… the blobs of paint in my paintings appear alien and otherworldly, even though they depict the stuff from which they’re made.”
