title The Artistīs Intentions and Genetic Coding in Algorithmically Generated Drawings
source International Conference on Generative Art
summary Art-work, based on line drawings, is challenging for a number of reasons. It is a very much reduced art form relying on and exploiting the calligraphic qualities of lines only. It is more related to writing than to painting and it has a transient element in it, which is attributed to the movements of the pen equipped hand. With the aid of computer programs line drawings can be produced, exhibiting very specific qualities. In asking what a single line is composed of, we may draw analogies to genetic coding and generate variations within a population of lines belonging to the same family. An artist can cast his intentions into the definition of such a genetic code and the drawings produced accordingly will populate a specific domain of the universe of machine generated drawings.
