So You’re Having A Bad Day zine (select pages).
Tips to feel better when you feel crap, sad, lazy, lonely, human.

Algorithms need not be software: in the broadest sense, they are encoded procedures for transforming input data into a desired output, based on specified calculations.
Indeed, algorithms need not always be software. For example, the “father” of conceptual art Sol Lewitt was a sort of algorithmic artist, as he devised the finite number of instructions - a program - on how to produce his works of art, like this:
WORK FROM INSTRUCTIONS (1971):
USING A BLACK, HARD CRAYON DRAW A TWENTY INCH SQUARE.
DIVIDE THIS SQUARE INTO ONE INCH SQUARES. WITHIN EACH
ONE INCH SQUARE, DRAW NOTHING, OR DRAW A DIAGONAL
STRAIGHT LINE FROM CORNER TO CORNER OR TWO CROSSING
STRAIGHT LINES DIAGONALLY FROM CORNER TO CORNER.
Which was later called “instruction-based” painting.
"Ideas alone can be works of art; they are in a chain of development that may eventually find some form. All ideas need not be made physical."
"When an artist uses a conceptual form of art, it means that all of the planning and decisions are made beforehand and the execution is a perfunctory affair. The idea becomes a machine that makes the art."
