Tools can control as well as serve. Across the web, pioneering artists and designers are recognising the exhilarating freedom and unparalleled control offered by programming. The 4x4 Project invited four influential and respected artists, renowned for their stunning experiments with code and art, to work together on the theme of "Life and Oblivion".
4x4 Beyond Photoshop requires no prior knowledge of programming, only an appetite to control your own creativity. The four authors provide the inspiration and information to allow you to create and to generate using different programming languages including Java, DBN, Auto-Illustrator, Lingo, MAX and Nato.
