Who needs great human masters? Tired of slaving away at art school? Don't have any talent? No worries, just let your robot do the art for you.

Who needs great human masters? People who like art that doesn't look like ass, that's who.

Seriously, though, Aaron has been making impressive works for over a quarter of a century. This stuff just looks like it would hang on a wall at a bank.

Once you see it, you can't unsee it. Thanks for that.

Seriously, they say they are using generative techniques to come up with the designs but they clearly aren't very good at it. I've seen way better designs come out of visual arts users of Processing.

I was disappointed that it was generally mediocre art, although I almost like the Capriccio one.

The Ass Art however was surprisingly fun. On the same site there were some curious stick figure depictions of relations between boys and girls, labelled in Russian. And some cute pics: bug peering over petal's edge. Fuzzy. Lovey dovey sea horses and dragonflies.

There is an Isaac Asimov short story about robot art.
