Infinitely running computer program displayed on computer screen

Programed to select the colour for each and every pixel of the screen, One of a possible … is a computer application which continuously creates and displays an image of it own design every few seconds. It has been equipped with all the necessary tools and functionality to produce recognisable images, however, although this is not an impossibility, the program unknowingly disregards any real expectation or hope of this and instead systematically produces any one of a possible infinity* of outcomes, and throughout this process the work begins to question ideas of existence and imagination.

*Exact possible variations of visual output = n to the power of r (where n=16,777,216 and r=1,764,000)
