Many artists when representing an object try to convey its “essence.” In an attempt to formalize certain aspects of depicting the essence of objects, the author proposes an art form called low-complexity art. It may be viewed as the computer-age equivalent of minimal art. Its goals are based on concepts from algorithmic information theory. A low-complexity artwork can be specified by a computer algorithm and should comply with two properties: (1) the drawing should “look right,” and (2) the… Expand
