Is there a word for art that was produced with code?

Is the fact that I can't find a word for it the reason why this kind of artist tends to be pressured into publishing their source code as if it were a software project rather than a visual effect?

@gaeel I've seen terms like "generative" or "algorithmic" or "live coding" to describe music made in this manner, perhaps those terms are being used for visual art as well.

@gaeel
computer art
computational art
generative art
algorithmic art

@darius @gaeel ah thank you! i was looking for the original reference. i know you linked it earlier but i couldn't find it
