Computational Art, also known as Algorithmic Art, is a kind of Generative Art, where the masterpieces, usually images or movies, are generated by algorithms: an example is Fractal Art.

This is an area I'd like to experiment with: I always wanted to do something "creative" but I've always been stopped by my bad sense aesthetics. But maybe I would be able to have an algorithm help me generating some cool randomness or simulation.

The programming language will be Processing, also mentioned a month ago by Jeff Atwood in one of his posts, which is a kind of domain-specific language on top of Java.

In the meantime I want to share with you my list of feeds:

The people I've to blame for showing me this cool stuff are Daniela and her colleague Dario

BTW, you have the sense of aesthetics like everybody else. It is made by 2 parts, one is related to the symbols every human recognizes, the other is cultural. The more you study arts and better you become with your aesthetics. What slowed you down so far was probably you were more interested in other things like programming. But belive me, you just have to look at other people's art. Go visiting museums, look at paintings, architecture, etc. It is like learning to play guitar.

Well... thank you for your "nice" words :)
I'll send you my creations for approval when I make something :)

You are experienced enough to know "programmers" have got two main issues, one is about many programmers with poor scholarship (that is not your case), the other is programmers with the famous "tunnel vision" (you can work on it, also thanks to Daniela :) ).
