Computer Viruses as Art? Apparently so, according to this site... Since coding has a creative bend to it, so do Viruses. A recent NYT article on this exhibition quotes the curator, her favorite being the Cascade virus from the early 90's, which caused document letters to tumble to the bottom of the screen. She compared it to an Apollinaire poem where the words form a raindrop on a page. Ironically enough - the exhibition is sponsored by Symantec, the antivirus software.
