Work Description: An algorithm generates an endless stream of possible art objects and displays the description as a notecard on an LCD screen. The subject and depictions of each virtual work come from the United States Library of Congress Subjects Index. Since the work is generated in real-time by combining phrases from databases, the descriptions are always new, unpredictable and not likely to repeat.
