John F. Simon, Jr. is an artist who uses programming language as an activated extension of written language. His software programs are displayed on the Web and also on wall-mounted LCD screens. His software compositions never repeat. The beautiful patterns and movement emerge from Simon's process of considering computer coding as a kind of creative writing. He made an artist's book about his software drawing tools that was published at Printed Matter in New York City.
