Artist Statement:


    GAIA was made entirely with a proprietary program, running on a standard PC, for creating series of images based on the evolution and mutation of image generation algorithms. At each iteration, the user chooses one of the proposed images, which acts as the progenitor of a new series, and so on. The procedure is inspired by the evolution of life. Following a “genetic code,” the forms are born, reproduce, and die, but instead of “survival of the fittest” the rule is “selection of the most attractive.”
