Definitions of software art and generative art have changed in the last ten years. This is because artists using the computer to create artworks and critics writing about their work have created invented categories to understand what is happening. It has been argued by some critics that there is no relationship between software and generative art. However, there are some critics who state that generative art has replaced software art, and that software art no longer exists. Yet, from a different perspective some critics argued that software does still exist but in a different form. This essay looks at the definitions of software art and generative art. It aims to show the relationship between software and generative art, including the differences between the two art forms.
