I write algorithms that translate non-visual information into paintings and drawings. This non-visual information has two sources: one is ordinary (common or random) and the other is extraordinary (sacred or poignant). I begin with, for example, texts exemplifying personal experiences of grief or the translation of a sacred Buddhist prayer ceremony. I then disrupt these meaningful origin texts with meaningless systems of chance such as dice rolling, card playing, etc. The result is a marrying of deliberate actions and unbiased chaos.
