What is generative art?
In this project I wanted to explore what generative art is about using the words that generative artists use to describe it. So I scraped and plundered websites, pdfs and books made by contemporary artists using generative processes in their artworks in order to have enough raw text to start with. I then organised all of these words based on the number of appeareances in the source and I finally used them as an input for a flocking simulation in order to create this generative manifesto.
This was my submission for the first term of a class I attended at Goldsmiths University of London during my MA in Computational Arts, called Programming for Artists. You can read more about it here on the Goldsmiths website.
