In artistic practices working with algorithmic processes, levels of automation and procedurality impact the process both methodologically and conceptually. Giving over degrees of agency to machinic processes in artistic production raises questions as to what impact this may have on the relation between producer and the mechanisms and processes used to articulate the work. In this sense, automation can be seen as not only a means to an end (Parisi) but impactful upon the process from the stage of ideation. The procedural logic of algorithmic media is influential to the modalities of generation and decision-making during the process of artistic production. The following paper explores how various degrees of automation and procedurality are expressed through a selection of pertinent artistic methodologies.
