Dr. Redmond's Context Free Art

badlandsDr. Redmond has been a regular contributor to the Context Free Art gallery for the past several years. You may see his work here: Redmond Context Free Art Gallery.

The images are produced via computer programming. There is no contact between the artist and work except through code. Every program written in the Context Free Art language may be considered to be a context free grammar for creating images. Thus, when one programs in this language, one is "inventing" grammars. Any image produced with such a grammar may be considered to be a legal sentence in the grammar. If randomness is introduced into the program, then there are many different legal sentences or images, and one is producing generative art.
