[ISEA2015] Introduction: Sub Theme: Generative Art

Introductory Statement

From strictly autonomous systems that generate complete work to tools for computer assisted creativity, artists and designers have been exploring generative frameworks for decades. In our increasingly computerized world, fronting a tsunami of data, we see an ever-increasing role for generative systems that operationalize autonomous behaviours that are algorithmically determined. We invite work that reflects on human and machine autonomy, aesthetics, and roles. How can we build on ideas of disruption in the framework of generative systems, processes, art?
