We analyse in this paper the way randomness is considered and used in ArtiE-Fract. ArtiE-Fract is an interactive software, that allows the user (artist or designer) to explore the space of fractal 2D shapes with help of an interactive genetic programming scheme. The basic components of ArtiE-Fract are first described, then we focus on its use by two artists, illustrated by samples of their works. These "real life" tests have led us to implement additionnal components in the software. It seems
