Proposal Title: Crude Cruft (1 minute memory), 01/27/2008, Web Art

Proposal Synopsis: Crude Cruft (1 minute memory) "We don't do body counts" -- General Tommy Franks This Crude Cruft is a composite of a daily image from the Department of Defense (http://www.defenselink.mil/today/), images of a waving American flag, and the events of recent Iraqi civilian deaths obtained from Iraqi Body Count (http://www.iraqbodycount.org/). Borrowing the computer hacker term "Cruft" I have applied it to my current series of images. I create these CRUFT images by writing 'recipes' (also known as an algorithm). An automated system follows the instructions, first harvesting selected source material from the Internet, and then processing that information into a CRUFT, generating images 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Artist's Biography: Robert Spahr is a visual artist and educator, who produces generative art programs, digital and analog images, objects, live art and time-based media. He lives in New York City.
