Would You Do It? – "Life at times seems to be a sequence of anecdotes, little innocent stories that happen to us and only later we realize the potential and meaning and danger and sorrow hidden in such stories. This presentation will, therefore, be in the form of some anecdotes that may, or may not, make sense to those who listen. The stories will be about the early days of some phenomena that then came to be called computer art. The term algorithmic art is a better choice, and I will explain why. One or two examples will demonstrate how algorithmic art requires algorithmic thinking. We will see how computer graphics is the origin of digital media, and how all this is part of the algorithmic revolution, a revolution that almost nobody really noticed but that is of utmost relevance."
