The two bots started tweeting back and forth, continually processing the results from the each other. After forty-two hand offs, the loop was broken so the two wouldn’t go on to infinity. Here’s what the two bots made together.

I love the idea of robot art. And glitch art can be very cool. It’s very abstract and postmodern. Done right it’s all about appreciating color, technique, and process. People make the coolest stuff on the Internet.
