Explain Algorithmic Drawing
1989 Algorithmic Drawing Dawn Study

Where people say "computer art," "mathematical art," or "software art," we say "algorithmic drawing." The word "algorithm" has become fairly common in the 21st century. Definr defines it as: a precise rule (or set of rules) specifying how to solve some problem. For us it means art created by a computer program. We add to this the word "drawing" since the actual work of art is on paper and of a size that is easy to carry around, like most fine art drawings.

Also, we only tell the printer to make a single drawing, no copies, so what you see is not a fine art print. Clearly, when printing an image, we could choose to make 120 copies, but we found that we were much more interested in seeing the next new image.
