Generative Art: Multi-Modal Meanings
International Conference on Generative Art
This paper introduces the concept of multi-modality, drawing upon recent work in the field of social semiotics  in an attempt to theorise how art generated through a variety of media deployed in a variety of modes may be understood through semiotic principles applicable to them all. Medium is defined as the means of expression (material and other technologies); mode is defined as the manner of expression. Case studies from the field of sculpture are illustrated.
