The following types of work can be referred to as artistic software:

1. Instructions (read_me) for modifying standard, commonly used software, as well as patches and anything that creates an artistic impact on software in a way not planned by the application's producers.
2. Deconstruction of existing software products, including computer games.
3. Programs written from scratch with a purpose different than the usual "rational" software purposes, i.e. the rejection of the idea of a program as a purely pragmatic tool. 

Since the curators of the festival do not consider it necessary for the framework of the artistic software categories to be too narrow, contact the curators if you are not sure if your work is suitable for read_me 1.2!
