Art

When I was little, my dad told me

“A computer always does exactly what you tell it to do.”

If you’ve ever been frustrated at your computer, phone, tablet… someone probably told it to do the wrong thing.

As a fulltime programmer, (or someone who spends most of their time trying to get computers to do the “right” thing), this bit of advice is very calming – the computer doesn’t have a mind of its own. Odds are, any problem you’re chasing down lies in a mistaken explanation or misunderstanding between you and the machine.

Yet somehow, and almost as-if by magic, there are times when you know exactly what the computer will do, and it still surprises you. I want to capture those moments in my art.
