Genetic Art

Structure, Musical [Str]  >  Formalism  ]

Artistic movement inspired by evolution theory in which the artist creates sounds and/or images which evolve following an autonomous genetic algorithm. Interactive genetic art allows for public intervention into this algorithm where choice determines factors used in subsequent mutation patterns. (Reduced from Dictionnaire des arts médiatiques:
