Digital art: Twitter bots

Since the theme this week has been Twitter bots, today I’m going to show you a couple of ingenious examples of… well, I suppose that it’s digital art: Twitter bots that send automatically generated images, that can be at best quite striking and at worst, a pleasant distraction. Now, I’m not saying that I like these (automated art? really?), but the idea is interesting, and the programming really clever.

Great Art Bot – computer-generated images, updated four times a day…

Pixel Sorter – tweet an image at this bot, and it will re-arrange the pixels and tweet it right back at you.

Quilt bot – this is my favourite. It will tweet a mash-up of any image you send it.
