Become a Great Artist in Just 10 seconds
Michael Brough & Andi McClure
2013
Online implementation by Patrick Winchell https://tekgo.org

1 player, a few minutes. You'll need a computer with a keyboard, or a tablet.

Become A Great Artist In Just 10 Seconds presents players with a way to create artworks by pressing different keys on the keyboard - but the relationship between what you do and what happens to your image is an oblique one. As you play, you develop theories about how to create different effects on the screen, and encounter happy (or unhappy!) accidents.

Players are encouraged to gradually accept that they aren't in full control of what happens on the screen, and find ways to enjoy the process of creation and exploration for its own sake, paralleling the process of creation that many artists go through in making their work. This work is purposely obscure with a hacked aesthetic - it has become very popular in the net art / glitch art world!
