Generative and Genetic Art

Wednesday, 2 August
1:45 - 3:30 pm
Rooom 207

Leading experts in generative and genetic art from the past 25 years, all of whose work has been featured at the annual SIGGRAPH conference, examine a range of topics including: chance and creativity, can art be an equation? the procedural and generative software toolbox, artist as god, the creative peaks and troughs of traveling through multidimensional parameter space, and genetic art into genetic engineering? With the growth in multicore computer systems (including game consoles) that are well suited for procedural and generative processes, this panel explores avenues for these genres in 2006 and beyond.
