What is digital aesthetics today and do designers really have creative liberty when using the computer? Did programmers and creators of lazy and lame software such as Microsoft Paint ever think of their creative potential?

This project shows why Microsoft Paint is as valuable as AI-generated images - the latter demanding huge computing performance - and how both can be combined into an electric symbiosis of technoart, between techno humour and high-performance criticism, disputing today’s highly consuming, pricey and elitist design computation techniques.
