In the web art piece ASCII Ink Blot (2004; figure 1.1), the user is shown a random configuration of characters. These characters form what is termed ASCII art, which was particularly popular in the early days of the Internet, when file size was more of an issue. Since ASCII characters used very few bytes, whereas pictures used quite a few, often in emails people drew figurative and abstract graphics, using text symbols. The user then describes, in text, what they see in the 'ink blot', and presses the submit button. The characters submitted by the user are then reconfigured to draw the subsequent ‘ink blot’ test. In this case, the interaction and the resulting computer output are inextricable.
