Computer-generated modern art parodies
Computer-generated abstract art in a variety of styles, mostly associated with various modern artists. Each piece has a title and a markov-chain 'artist's statement'. The page is formatted for mobile devices, but works reasonably in any browser.

There is a key at the bottom of each page associated with the image displayed, so you can keep track of your favorites.
Also, the key does not need to be a number.

The spontaneous generation of visual meaning is, in essence, the inescapable harmony of the mechanical artist against its organic world.

I mean, that is to say, wicked cool concept. I bet if you could output a high enough resolution people would pay money for prints. If Duchamp taught us anything, it's that parody of art is art in itself. For crying out loud, Scott Draves screensaver images as art, so you oughtta be able to do something similar.

It is hard to compete with the professionals. (self-link, of course)

Are these generated on-the-fly? If not, permalinks would be nice to have.
