I am a composer; my work is made with a composer-player-audience triple in
mind. So, performativity, for my work, happens when the player acts.
For the Draws (workly.com/draws), I compose the drawing, and the computer
plays it. This is the norm for generative art. Probably "generative art"
should just be called "theatrical art" to help the grad students.
For my games, the players are the players. There is often a computer player,
but sometimes not: workly.com/wg .
Thank you for the discussion, Victoria.
Also, thank you, Curt, for the Gamma and Satterwhite: so delightful.
