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.

our intention is to affirm this life, not to bring order out of chaos or to suggest improvements in creation, but simply to wake up to the very life we' re living, which is so excellent once one gets one' s mind and one' s desires out of its way and lets it act of its own accord.
