Abstract/Summary/Introduction:

This panel brings together leading experts of generative and genetic art from the past 25 years, all of whose work has been featured at the annual SIGGRAPH conferences during this period. The panelists examine a range of topics including: “chance and creativity,” “can art be an equation?” “the procedural and generative software toolbox,” “artist as god,” “the creative peaks and troughs of traveling through multidimensional parameter space,” and “genetic art into genetic engineering?” With the growth in multicore computer systems (including games consoles) that are well suited for procedural and generative processes, the panel explores avenues for these genres in 2006 and beyond.
