Abstract

The challenge that this text sets itself is to understand what the mechanisms are that enable the emergence of art forms considered computational. I prefer to use the term ‘computational’ rather than the popularly-found definitions such as ‘technological art’ and ‘digital art,’ because I understand that ‘technological art’ translates simply as an artistic praxis employing a series of applied techniques. Since every form of manifestation through art presupposes the use of a certain technique, the term “technological art” becomes somewhat redundant. All art is technological. Whenever man develops some technology, it becomes accessible to people who use it to produce art.
