Artist Uses Computer Viruses To Create Art

Posted on Apr 9 2008 - 10:20am by Craig

Have you ever wondered what a computer virus would look like? You have to see this video.

Computer Artist Alex Dragulescu is brilliant. He turns computer viruses into art! Security vendor Message Labs gives data files with viruses and malware to Alex. He then parses the data into 3D images and out comes the ART. The computer does all the work. I must admit – I like what I see. Great job Alex!

The Varnish Gallery in San Francisco recently had an exhibit called infected art (nice name) that displayed Alex’s works.
