Whitelaw, M.: Breeding aesthetic objects: Art and artificial evolution. In: Bentley, P.J., Corne, D. (eds.) Proceedings of the AISB 1999 Symposium on Creative Evolutionary Systems (CES), Morgan Kaufmann, San Francisco (1999). Gesamt-pdf des Symposiums:




This paper presents an account of the work of visual artists applying artificial evolutionary techniques, addressing the implications of these techniques for artistic practice. It examines the forms of artistic or creative agency found within the field, the nature of the evolved aesthetic object, and the possible limits to this work.
