I like to think through art.  https://milano.academia.edu/myvanwygibson

I am interested in art and technology, cultural theory, post-humanism and the possibility of an 'Anthropononcentric' Art. Alongside paintings and videos, I use transdisciplinary practice to develop what I call ‘structures’ . Essentially these are the arrangement of, and relation between, the parts or elements of somethingThey may be material things constructed from several parts such as sculptural works and collaborative exhibitions of works, or processes such as curating feeds, disseminating headlines and enactments. 

That aside, I would like to say to you Mr. Lewitt - that I think the idea is not the machine that makes the art, but rather that art is the machine that makes the idea.
