Throughout history, artists have produced drawings. As an art form, drawings are more related to writing than to painting. Drawings are a unique and rich domain of a artistic involvement and expression. It is my hypothesis that there exists a comparably rich domain of algorithmically-generated drawings. Such drawings should exploit algorithmic techniques, should not be reproducible by hand, should reveal their machine orgins, and should display distinctive and unique features as well as strong calligraphic qualities.
