OMFG iLKke is right!!! The pic tricked me at first, but now I recognize the famous "ladder"-dithering that has been a standard technique in converters for a long time. This is shocking news!

"What is computer based fine arts?" ...one can hardly find any answer to the question... Creative artists and the art itself that use the computer as its media is used in various other branches of art, such as in music. Commodore 64 is used as a tool for creation - instead of brush one uses a tac two or a comp pro.

Herbert W. Franke, one of the very inventors of computer art, touched this subject in his big question: "Is the image created using koalapainter really an art?" We could also ask whether tones played using violin are also music. In both cases we just used tools to produce the art.

In this case the artist used the koalapainter and his joystick to produce some of the finest piece of dithers, shapes, emotions and layers of thought.

As much as I appreciate both hednings and macx's analysis. I'm going to provide my own in-depth analysis and after having done that, I've concluded this is a piece of shit.

Macx: With all due respect, it seems that only I and Cruzer are capable of a full experience of this masterpiece.

Tibble dithering, a new standard is born. Wonder if anyone else will be able to master it. Joe's techniques pale in comparison.

I care to differ, hedning:

If one examines neocultural desituationism, one is faced with a choice: either accept TibbleKoala as is or conclude that the purpose of the artist is deconstruction, given that neocultural desituationism is invalid. In a sense, the subject is contextualised into a semioticist theory that includes narrativity as a paradox. Any number of discourses concerning neocultural desituationism may be found.

The premise of any TibbleKoalas in capitalist or communist pretextual theory states that narrative comes from the collective unconscious. In a sense, several theories concerning submodernist desublimation may be found.

This deserves to be run on real hardware. I really liked it in VICE but when I loaded it up on my C64 I was blown away. The dithering really comes through on my CRT.

Cresh: Infidel! I might have done a freudian analysis, but still I believe your postmodern analysis lack in a serious hermeneutic-relativistic manner. It is obviously so that the KOALA statement exhibits fragmentation, self-reference, hyperreality, and the piece of art itself copious sampling. These elements are hallmarks of a postmodern cultural piece of art. Each piece of the picture is not an ordered contribution to a story told by the whole, as a traditional piece of art would be structured.

Dude, I do not agree with you! This KOALA explores the relationship between Pre-raphaelite tenets and romance tourism.

With influences as diverse as PAL and Carrion, new variations are created from both constructed and discovered discourse.

Ever since Bittin was a postgraduate he has been fascinated by the traditional understanding of the universe. What starts out as vision soon becomes corrupted into a hegemony of temptation, leaving only a sense of failing and the dawn of a new undefined.

As momentary derivatives become distorted through studious and critical practice, the viewer is left with an impression of the darkness of our condition.

Very interesting piece of art. According to Nostradamus, the apparition of monsters is a presage of war. This piece of art was indeed made near the capital of Sweden April 2013 and it has a prophetic character. The left woman-horse must represent the maternal river-monster, the connected man the male cosmic apocalyptic monster. The rainbow mouth must be the divine heterosexual monster, and the connection between the woman-horse and the male the metaphysical monster, together they form the sentimental monster. The little lonely black pixel to the very right is not a true monster. The added text (narrative) enlighten us about bittins critical-paranoiac method used.

bittin illustrates another Freud’s discoveries. He said: "...a typical dream with a long theme, the consequence of a sudden accident that causes the awakening.”

Further, stating "KOALA" in a koala pic is quite fascinating form of meta art, and the koala represents the artists wish to link himself the physical world, the unconscious, and the spiritual realm. The koala also symbolizes security, nurturance, protection, and/or feminine qualities. bittin may be expressing a desire to regress back into infantile dependence and escape from your daily responsibilities/problems... thus making this piece of art even deeper.
