KEITH TYSON first found fame by feeding data into a computer which then instructed him to paint 366 breadboards and cast a Kentucky Fried Chicken menu in lead.
Tyson is best known for his Artmachine, 1991 2001 a (mythical?) device programmed to generate random ideas for artworks that the artist was then obliged to realize (casting the largest available Kentucky Fried Chicken meal in lead or using breadboards as supports for 365 paintings, for instance).
