This short paper describes the basic principles of an implementation of an algorithmic art generator. It is based on the principle of ricocheting lines drawn on a two dimensional canvas. The user of the generator is able to make some adjustments in terms of for instance coloring and the level of detail. An aim for the future is to reduce the human influence by inserting knowledge about aesthetics into the system.
