Algorithmic Poems

The digital revolution in art isn't new. But it's looking better all the time.

Roman Verostko

The merging of technology and art seems inevitable. Scientific inquiry has given art its most astonishing advancements. Roman Verostko, an octogenarian from the coalfields of eastern Pennsylvania, goes one step further however. His computer-controlled penplotting elicits a visual accuracy beyond the ability of the absinthe-addled artist-genius. The results of his algorithmic art are stunning, though the spontaneity of art’s indelible core seems missing. Is this a man who sees the future? Or an aging hippie with too much technology at his fingertips?
