McCormack, J.: Evolving for the Audience. International Journal of Design Computing, Special Issue on Designing Virtual Worlds, vol. 4 (2002).



This paper presents a novel type of artistic virtual environment, populated by evolving sonic agents. Particular attention is paid to the methodology employed as part of the agent’s evolu- tion in relation to the audience. Through a link between the real and virtual spaces, agents ev- olve implicitly to try to maintain the interest of the audience.
