I look at it 2 ways. It might be more precise, but doesn't any art take on the little inconsistencies of the artist? Being perfect isn't art.

  @Cabe: I like your analogy. There was a lively discussion back in the 60s when Moog synthesizers were just becoming popular. Of course it is music and it is totally repeatable each time it is played. One arguement against the mechanical music was that it did not allow for artistic interpretation. I wonder how close orchestras today play classic works written by Beethoven, Motzart, and other great masters. Whereas that which is written as a computer sequence would be exactly the same each time it is played.

  Another post in this thread states that art is in the eye of the beholder. I could not agree more. I am often shocked by what people have paid for Picasso while Norman Rockwell sells for much less. If someone told me that Picasso was generated by robots I would believe that, while Rockwell's work touches my heart in a way that could only done by another living breathing soul.

Erase them, now we're talking! I mean your not going to erase Mom, but maybe it's been a few years and Sara doesn't seem at important to you as say... Joe. Everybody loves Undo! Tattoos are a personal choice. I heard of one guy who had flames tattooed on his penis (while in prison). Not sure what that was about. I suppose if the ladies say "whoa, this is a four alarm fire" or something it is worth it but I am putting my money on Undo.

Art or not ?

Art is a matter of perception.  Whether it is applied by robot, or even generated by robot is irrelevant.  Is fractal geometry, art ?  It can be.  Another aspect is: What does "designer" mean when talking about clothes, home furnishings etc.  Everything is "designed" by someone.  Just because the stuff is designed by a high profile "designer" shouldn't make it more valuable than anything that looks (to you) nice, and works well.

Tattoos have been around since well before humans could write,  Almost every culture on earth has had them at one time or another, many still do.  Whether they are desirable or not is a matter of opinion though, and everyone is free to choose and be happy or otherwise.  At least, now, we can fairly readilly erase them.

@ Ralphy Boy- funny, the same could be said of robotic musicians. Is it still music?

Tats huh...

And so we return to that age old question (well a couple years old anyway); is computer generated 'art' "art"?

Tats are a bad hangover from world war two. Never a good idea and always a bad one. Don't get me wrong, I love body art but as a rule it should wash off.

3D Tattoos.

Nice share Lauren. Yesterday, I myself was reading about this 3D printer that can ink tattoos. I am looking forward to more detailed 3D tattoos from this printer. Thumbs up to Pierre Emm for coming up with this device using his creativity. This will give the tattoos a whole new meaning and detail.
This again proves the importance of the 3D printer's invention. I am sure there are many other ways this printer can be hacked to be used for a specific purpose, and in the near future people will certainly use their creativity to come up with such alterations and invent unique and surprisingly breathtaking devices.
