Generative Art by processing
1) An understanding of the properties of generative art
2) Common strategies for producing visual content with generative techniques, basic interactivity
3) Survey of more advanced topics in generative art, stubs and templates for pursuing niche topics
This workshop will introduce principles of generative art, the branch of art concerned with the creation of visual artefacts from autonomous systems and algorithmic processes inspired by nature, mathematics, biology, and computer science. Various strategies for producing unexpected and serendipitous visual forms will be covered, ranging from simple graphical iterations and emergent patterns, to complex and unpredictable procedures, including cellular automata and agent-based interactive systems.
