Response to Casey Reas

Through explaining the origin of computer artwork, Casey Reas improved my understanding of the essence of computer art. I would describe Casey Reas artwork as a  beautiful mess. His artwork is able to evoke emotions combining shapes and color with random patterns and although the elements from a perspective behave in disorder, once put together all the elements together create an aesthetic piece of art.

My takeaway of Casey Reas talk is the importance of using noise and random. One of my biggest challengings in computer art is to unlearn that symmetry is the way to achieve beauty and aesthetic. What I have learned with this video and with the assignments in class, is that there are no concrete ways to achieve beauty, definitely, there is beauty in the order but you can find also find beauty in chaos and randomness like Casey Reas.
