“A computer can't actually behave randomly.  Instead, programmers invent algorithms so that a computer appears to behave randomly insofar its patterns of behavior appear non-sensical.  The algorithm is a success when the user can't trace the pattern. “
Each of the paintings, prints and programs in Random Feels Familiar uses pseudo-random procedures as a way to create mystery and visual surprise.  Using fragments of the artist’s digital life drawings, these works are remixed and presented as new pseudo-random compositions.

Launch: Friday 15 December, 6pm-8pm
