But our method is clear. Unless our robots develop a tendency to spend some of their time producing artifacts with no practical use and exposing themselves to these artifacts, we will not be entitled to claim that we have constructed robots that have art. But even after we have constructed robots that have art, many important questions remain open, and the validity of our approach should be measured in terms of its capacity to provide answers to these questions.
