Description
8-bit Méta-matic takes its inspiration from Jean Tinguely's mechanical generative drawing machines of the 1950's and 60's. However, where Tingluey used mechanical imperfections to call into question the authorship of art, 8-bit Méta-matic utilizes custom code and inherent glitches in display technology to create a never ending stream of unique imagery.
