Sometimes it's nice to go back to basics in terms of new media art...the not-so-new can be refreshing. Take a look at "ARTificial ART," by Swiss software developer Kurt Baumann. The site offers simple examples that convey how less-than-complicated algorithms paired with random numbers can result in patterns reminiscent of the best Modern art (think Abstract Expressionism for the digital age). A bit of trivia: earlier versions of ARTificial ART were distributed as shareware over bulletin boards even before the Internet as we know it was born.
