Generative Art (a gentle introduction)

  1. 1. generative art Dr. Sabin Buraga Faculty of Computer Science, UAIC – Iasi, Romania www.purl.org/net/busaco
  2. 2. generative art “any art practice where the artist uses a system, such as a set of natural language rules, a computer program, a machine, or other procedural invention, which is set into motion with some degree of autonomy contributing to or resulting in a completed work of art” Philip Galanter, 2003
  3. 3. generative art “Programming is an interface between man and machine; it is a clean, logical discipline, with clearly defined aims. Art is an emotional subject, highly subjective & defying definition. Generative Art is the meeting place between the two.” Matt Pearson – http://abandonedart.org/?page_id=567
  4. 4. generative art “…is about creating the organic using the mechanical.” Matt Pearson
  5. 5. generative art algorithmic art (computer generated art)
  6. 6. generative art (generative) systems art “using a pre-determined set of rules that give rise to a range of unpredictable results” Tony Pritchard, 2009
  7. 7. generative art related topics: data visualization & infographics
  8. 8. generative art related topics: human-computer interaction www.info.uaic.ro/~busaco/teach/courses/hci/
  9. 9. generative art one of the most common techniques: fractals iterated function systems (IFS)  L-systems strange attractors  escape-time fractals  random fractals fractalfoundation.org
  10. 10. generative art one of the most common techniques: fractals iterated function systems (IFS)  L-systems strange attractors  escape-time fractals  random fractals also, watch B. Mandelbrot, Fractals and the art of roughness (2010) www.ted.com/talks/benoit_mandelbrot_fractals_the_art_of_roughness
  11. 11. generative art Fractint – a venerable freeware application (since 1988) fractint.org Easy Fractal Generator – an interactive Web fractal generator www.easyfractalgenerator.com XaoS – an open source interactive fractal zoomer http://sourceforge.net/projects/xaos/
  12. 12. an L-system generator using HTML5 http://www.kevs3d.co.uk/dev/lsystems/

  18. 18. generative art Art from code: Generator.x – www.generatorx.no
  19. 19. other useful tools to be experimented: Context Free Art – a program that generates images from written instructions called a grammar contextfreeart.org openFrameworks – an open source C++ toolkit for creative coding www.openframeworks.cc VVVV – a hybrid visual/textual live-programming environment for easy prototyping and development vvvv.org
