Art made from stars and us of course. A new style of art is gaining popularity around the world under the guise of an international multimedia experiment. Barcelona artist Sergio Albiac has pioneered the style which involves the creation of a computer generated collage which is an intertwinement of  a randomly selected image taken from the Hubble telescope, and a human facial portrait. The process is completed via an algorithm embedded in a custom created computer program designed by Sergio himself. This project is the first known attempt at this new art style known as algorithmic art.  

So without further adieu a few examples of the art form in question.

Now i have a question to propose.
    Since the works of design in question are created by a program with virtually no artistic creativity and art is basically a creative human process with a final product known as the artwork, can these creations be called "works of art?" What do you think?

This is incredible! I think those pictures are fantastic. As for the question you posed I do consider those creations to be works of art. Although they are computer generated art can be defined as as the expression of imagination and/or creative skill. In my opinion, these works of art are just that. There is still a process that needs to be completed to create them. To me that process is still art.

Okay I can appreciate the artistic process very much and i agree these are beautiful images but what makes me weary is how the final stages are completed, it almost seems like its fake. But that might be my personal bias as i am a firm believer in the tradition mediums for art.

I'm not exactly sure how this process works to be honest. I have to look more into it. Do you know of a good place to find out? Youtube video maybe?
