Project Description:
Datapainting is sort of a real-time, on-demand Pollock painting producer, but instead of canvas and paint, it's using data from a vast array of IP host addresses.

As explained by the author: "Each picture is a dynamic composition which results from a program. In programs, some parameters vary randomly or according to data suitable for the moment and the technical context in which the picture generation takes place. Each picture is thus a representation in the field of possibles ones created by the code. Each image is then an element of an infinite and disordered series."
