The evolution of every living organism is influenced by its environment. Different species overcome their unique deficiencies and mutate in order to thrive within their surroundings. As humans creating art, we are also constantly shifting to adapt and thrive within our environment.
In the new era of generative art, the digital recreation of natural phenomena requires a process of creative evolution. This exhibition brings together artists who have adapted to their changing environments by using code to create unique art pieces that reinterpret natural processes.
These artists create algorithms that evolve based on the environment, and take inspiration from the organic growth and computational biological processes happening around them in nature. By responding to and reinterpreting their surroundings, these artists create a new path to transformation and break the boundaries of what was previously considered possible. In nature, time is a factor shaping what an environment can become or thrive towards in the future. Similarly, these artworks take shape over time as they move towards their final form.
Each of the works in the exhibition reflects a unique approach to the mathematical and generative evolution of art, creativity and nature, while also revealing the artist’s particular affection for their environment.
