A random number generator is an algorithm used by computer programmers to make sure that no two dynamically created items end up the same. The function, srandom() seeds the random number generator. It is given the argument time(NULL). This returns the time in seconds since the first of January 1970 and uniquely guarantees a generated random number; a nice reflection that no two things are ever the same and that everything must change with time.

srandom(time(NULL));

Viewing a limited edition print in person is a good way to get a sense of its scale, the vibrancy of its colours and, all the nuances of textures of the print surface. My work can be found in galleries in Ireland and abroad.
