Description The objective of this paper is to examine the production in contemporary new media art, specifically software art, within the category of expression as a means to conceive creative production within the context of today’s digital society. Inspired by the term ‘expressive processing’ coined by Noah Wardrip-Fruin in 2009, this paper provides an investigation of three patterns that, I suggest, most commonly define ways of expression in or through the artistic discipline of software art. Those include 1) expressive aspects of human, represented as authorial expression in determining the rules of the work at the moment of creation (coding), 2) on a physical level (physical performance of executing the code physically), and 3) machine (expressing processes of software functioning), which is the autonomous behaviour of the system that is present at works as an element of randomness.
