Pygoya, the novel, as it relates to art theory

 

Computer graphics digs up the ageless philosophical question, "What is art?" Dr. Rodney Chang - Shanghai University College of Fine Arts

 

"A computer has no idea of its own. It can't wake up in the middle of the night and invent Cubism or Impressionism or Pop Art. Before it can make an electronic image, it must be fed the right instructions."  - Dr. Rodney Chang

But in the world of fiction, anything is possible.  In the novel "Pygoya" (2006, Booksurge, LLC, available at Amazon.com) the above quotation is made invalid.  At night the artist's computer works on its own, delighting the awakening artist with imaginative imagery he would claim as his own.
