Most people would not view a computer science algorithm or a computer program as art. I believe algorithms and other forms of technology can and should be considered art. When someone does something very well, it can be considered “beautiful”. The algorithm in Sunset Solitaire, which creates an artificial sunset, is art in itself. The algorithm in Green, which triggers speakers to make noise, is art in itself. If two people are told to accomplish a goal, the two people's way of getting to that goal will not be the same. Each person will do things differently. In this way, algorithms should be considered beautiful. When people do things differently they are told they are “unique”. All algorithms are unique and therefore beautiful. And anything beautiful should be considered art.
