Author:Jürgen Schmidhuber
Description: Low-complexity art is the computer-age equivalent of minimal art (Leonardo, MIT press, 1997). A low-complexity artwork can be specified by a short computer algorithm. It should 'look right', its algorithmic complexity should be small, and a typical observer should be able to see and understand its simplicity. This inspired a complexity-based theory of beauty. Several examples are given. Also see, by the same author, Facial Beauty and Fractal Geometry.
