TEXT:

The painting in the age of the internet? The idea for E.G. is simple: the machine is the new painter and its languages are the new painting techniques. The brush stroke is now replaced by a portion of HTML code, the painter is your own computer, each painting is generated each time and everytime is brand new. References to the past abstract masterpieces are evident, but today a work of art like a Rothko's painting is reduced to a mathematical formula that give instruction to the machine to create the final painting.

See the works here.









TECH NOTES:
BECAUSE OF THE USE OF CSS, THESE WORKS NEED THE MOST RECENT WEB-BROWSERS TO BE SEEN AND MAY REQUIRE HEAVY COMPUTATIONAL EFFORTS. IF YOUR OPERATIVE SYSTEM FREEZES E.G. TAKES NO RESPONSABILITIES IN CASE OF EVENTUAL DAMAGE OR DATA LOSS. USE ALT-F4 OR APPLE-Q IF YOU'RE UNABLE TO CLOSE THE WINDOWS. IN CASE OF DOUBT, CONTACT E.G. DON'T USE INTERNET EXPLORER WITH MAC TO SEE THESE WORKS, PLEASE USE NETSCAPE 7. THE BEHAVIOUR IS NOT LINEAR, TRY MORE THAN ONCE IF YOU SEE NOTHING. THE FINAL PAINTING IS COMPLETED ONLY AFTER ENOUGH COMPUTATIONAL TIME: PLEASE LEAVE THE PAINTING ON FOR AT LEAST TWO MINUTES, BUT THE MORE YOU LEAVE IT GOING THE BEST RESULT YOU HAVE.
