Algorithm Auction Proves Code is Art
Tech-inspired collectors' items to benefit Cooper Hewitt Museum
We celebrate art today in many forms — paintings we can hang on the wall, old artifacts with historical significance, interior design that speaks to cultural identities. In the wake of technological advances and new languages, technologists and computer scientists imagine new capacities for art driven by code and data.
To celebrate a unique and expanding category for art collectors, Artsy, the website and iPhone app of the world’s largest online database of contemporary art, hosted the first-ever Algorithm Auction.
