Software art

Software art refers to works of art where software, or concepts from software, play an important role; for example software applications which were created by artists and which were intended as artworks.

Software art as an artistic discipline has attained growing attention since the late 1990s. It is closely related to Internet art since it heavily relies on the Internet, most notably the World Wide Web, for dissemination and critical discussion of the works. Browser art is an important subset of software art.
