ONE NEW GENERATIVE ARTWORK EVERY DAY.
What does a prime number sound like?
What does it look like?
Prime Symphony is created using randomly-generated prime numbers.
A new one every day.
Primes are some of the most unique and unpredictable numbers in mathematics. They were long thought to have no practical purpose at all, but are now widely used incryptography algorithms in computer security.
Prime Symphony explores ideas related to the concept of computer-generated
and computer-created art. Humans create the algorithms.The algorithms create sound and images from the properties of the prime number.
Is it art? If so, who is the artist?
The machine, the algorithm or the programmer?
Just like prime numbers, there is an infinite number of potential artworks and soundscapes. We'll only be able to watch and listen to a finite number of those.
Until it appears, the end result remains a mystery to all exceptthe algorithms creating it.
