algorist's statement

algorist versus abacists; donald knuth's definition.

the algorist group story: I created it in 1995 with roman verostko and i coined the term algorist to define our art movement.

my 1995 historic, original algorists page is off line for now. i have to locate it, and post it again.

(it used to be: http://hebert.kitp.ucsb.edu/studio/algorists.html)

i have made several talks on algorithms in art, that can be traced years before the digital era. i should also post my slides.

but there is a wikipedia page about algorithmic art: schools, styles, techniques, systems, methods, concepts.

roman verostko also has a well documented algorists page.

painting is just another way of keeping a diary.
