Prompt no. 1 — Terrible Piece of Art
The first prompt was supposed to be a bad art made in some time based media. Because I’ve chosen to work with chaos theory and generative art this semester, I didn’t want to make some video… I wanted to make the bad art in some way I find useful for me. Therefore the web.
The first thing that comes to my mind when someone says “bad art” is something that is really ugly. Now, I know that art is not all about how something looks, but that’s just what my brain imagines as a first thing… Appearance.
And the second thing I imagine is the rest. That means:
- Something that doesn’t make any sense.
- Something I’ve seen somewhere else already.
- Something ordinary that anyone could do.
So that’s exactly what I wanted to achieve!
The main inspiration for this project was for me one of the internet archives with short animations. At first, I wanted to program the algorithm to download the animations automatically, but then… That would be too good for a bad art. So I downloaded some (300) of them.
