net.art generators
Cornelia Sollfrank (with Ryan Johnston, Luka Frelih, Barbara Thoens, Ralf Prehn)

Algorithmic web server scripts which resample websites (based, among others, on Markov chain algorithms) to generate sites which can be aesthetically passed off as "net.art". The scripts allow anyone to instantly create their own net.art sites/projects in the World Wide Web.

Cornelia Sollfrank used the first version of the generators to enter 288 websites under the identity of 288 of fictitious female artist to a net art contest of the Hamburg museum of contemporary art, without anyone in the jury noticing the prank.
