Greenfield, Gary: Generative Art and Evolutionary Refinement. In: EvoMUSART 2010, S. 291-300.



In considering a case study, we examine the process of promoting emergence and creativity within an evolutionary art system using the technique of evolutionary refinement. That is, for the complex, difficult to predict generative scheme based on a model for simulating cellular morphogenesis that forms the generative component of an evolutionary art system, we discuss how we proceed in stages to develop, analyze, focus, and re-target evolved genetic material for aesthetic purposes — in this instance aesthetic pattern formation.
