Join The Australian Arts Party [#geekgirl]
“The Arts Party believes in involving all members in the process of decisions making – all the way from the formation of the party, through to decisions about policy platform and development, communications of our activities and political activism. Party members will be asked to inform and direct the party through regular polls, held online and by other accessible and open means. We will make sensible use of technology, wherever possible, to enhance our member involvement and make being an active and involved member of the party easier and more enjoyable. We will encourage active involvement by our members as we formulate and evolve our policies for each future election and as we solidify our plans for future influence over parliamentary decisions on a Local, State and Federal level.”

The #Pixel #Painter [#geekgirl]
“Hal Lasko, better known as Grandpa, worked as a graphic artist back when everything was done by hand. His family introduced him to the computer and Microsoft Paint long after he retired.
Now, Grandpa spends ten hours a day moving pixels around his computer paintings. His work is a blend of pointillism and 8-Bit art.
Meet 97-year-old Hal Lasko, The Pixel Painter.”
#Stardust: An Experiment in #Generative #Portraiture [#geekgirl]
“This experiment in generative portraiture…will give birth to as many novel combinations as possible, taking the risks of non curated creation and experimenting with the use of generative strategies to create assisted works of art. It should also raise issues about the origin of value in art: meaning to the viewer eyes, originality, authorship, scarcity, idea generation and execution dexterity.”
