Strange as it may sound, a computer program can be more creative than a human being. Reason being that a program is not bothered by education, taste or style. In 1990 professor Remko Scha of the university of Amsterdam asked me to write a program that would act as an artist. I did it on an Apple computer using Hypertalk.

The program with the name Artificial had an exhibition in March 1991 in Gallery Zeebelt in the Hague where thirty works of the new artist were shown to the amazed spectators.

At present I don’t program anymore. Some of the works of this artist I used since then as the basis of some silkscreen prints. The last image is a photo of a part of the wall in the Kallitechnion where I clean my palets. Actually I appreciate this more than the work of the Artificial artist.
