A slow parade of geometric forms ambles across the screen one at a time, each leaving behind a random imprint as it passes. A little dusting of virtual particles completes the process, and the resulting picture is automatically numerated and signed as though the authentic output of a human artist. Unlike a human however, the machine can effortlessly produce a hundred masterpieces for the price of one.
