As I've mentioned before, I've been producing art pieces using the GPL-licensed 
language BASIC-256. An art collector has now purchased a print of one of these 

I think that art made with Libre Software could be a worthwhile plan of attack 
for helping out the
movement. Art can speak for itself, bypassing the problems of ideology and 
technical jargon. I can
deliver a very simple and direct message to anyone who looks at one of my 
pictures: this work
could *only* be created in an environment of software freedom. In other words, 
software freedom is
an absolutely indispensable requirement for artistic freedom when you're 
talking about the way I
produce art. If someone asks whether I could have made this work using Adobe 
Photoshop, the
answer is a flat and simple "no." Period. End of story. Nothing complicated 
about it. If anyone insists
on getting more details, please feel free to give them my email address.
