Experiment using JS within LESS to create random values for simple generative art. Also demonstrates refreshing/reprocessing LESS without reloading the page, and so re-running the JS to generate new values. See in action, here: http://www.thismanslife.co.uk/projects/lab/isthisart/

Very nice work @James - A cool experiment and nicely done!
Wow, that is really awesome :D Love it.
Yep, that's art. :)
Most definitely Art http://dribbble.com/shots/446899-Art
I understand your question. "Traditional" artists have a hard time accepting it, but that was the same with photography. If you look just at the output, it definitely is art. I guess they just don't like that you can generate a new piece with a click of a button and think it's somehow of less value than hand-made.
I guess they call that "generative art".
Art or not, this is cool.
"Art" is creation, shared, as something for another viewer to experience, and react to.
Ironically, sometimes a viewers reaction is: "That's not art" ...thus proving that it is :)
And here, people, we see why some pieces are called Art and some are not. If there was a signature beneath this site of Warhol, or one of the fresh arty types like Joshua Davis - it would instantly be called Art and placed a huge price stamp on it (yes, I know that is not actually possible). Made by unknown person living in his corner of the internet, we can only question; is this art?
This is most definitely art. While your JS is generating some random rotation values, the constraints you've placed on the layout, format and color are what makes it art (in my opinion).
You can't just type makeArt(); into a computer and have it spit something like this out. Looks awesome, and like a fun project.
this is art for sure and very forward thinking art.
@Goran "No one puts unknown person in the corner (of the internet)" :)
Amazing, not sure if you tried to animate the matrix but that would be my only suggestion instead of the abrupt switch.
Thanks... but they're random too :)
1. Buy this print button.
2. Download as Photoshop pattern.
Fantastic, James. And yes, this is art :)
All art is quite useless
This is nothing short of brilliant!
this. is. so. freaking. cool.
So awesome man, this is brilliant.
nicely raised question, Is this art ?
Hell yeah! THIS IS ART.
If you're asking yourself this question, it's probably most likely a piece of art. :-)
