[ISEA2008] Paper: Paul Brown – Far from the Main Stream

Abstract

This paper proposes that today’s computational and generative arts are the legitimate inheritors of the 20th century traditions of constructivism, systems, conceptual and process art . Often formed from close collaborations between art, science and technology this field of work also exhibits important aspects of contemporary culture and thought including: emergence, non-linearity, hyper-mediation, interaction, networking, self-similarity, self regulation and so on. They are also one historical root of the contemporary science of artificial life .
