sajohnso Looking Outwards 09

In her looking outwards 06 post, Arula discussed Andrej Bauer’s random art website. Her description of the way it works and its response to user text interaction really helped me analyze the website when I visited it to analyze it myself. By expanding on her research, I found that this website is actually based on hash visualization, and implements many different mathematical functions such as sin, cos, exp, square root, division, and mix. Some critics have looked at it as a fresh look on what separates random images from “art”, and whether that distinction can truly ever be drawn.
