The goal of this project was to extend artificial life art-by-choice methods for creating abstract two-dimensional computer art to abstract three-dimensional computer art. Of particular importance were the exploration of artists “tools” that could “control” artificial life art, escaping the so-called “tyranny of the rectangle”, and meeting the challenge of expressing oneself in virtual non-planar abstracts. This project culminated in a series of screen-rendered cubes. The CUBES documents the emergence of a new art form.
