“Editorial note: Abstract paintings created by students of Hiroshi Kawano were digitalized by dividing the images into grids of single elements and recording their attributes numerically. These input data were transformed by Markov chain random processes, which consist of 1) analysis: defining transition probability matrix, and 2) synthesis: the Monte Carlo method. Thus, the output data for new images were generated. The images were painted by hand in gouache on paper.” Source: Rosen, 2011 P. 257
