[eu-gene] There must be no generative, procedural or computational art

As a generative artist I don’t think of my activities as much different from traditional painting. Instead of a brush I write algorithms combined with random data. (actually pseudorandom data, but I don’t think that distinction is important)
The unique aspect of generative art is that one can easily have many variations of the same work. The program can be run several times. In traditional painting this would be the same as the artist returning to the same location and painting the same scene maybe a year later, or in music, a jazz combo playing the same piece twice. It will always be different.
Generative art and traditional painting/music composition, both have a process and a finished product. The outside observer can then focus on what ever they want.
