title The art of growth and the solution of cognitive problems
source International Conference on Generative Art
summary A cellular method is proposed as an alternative for a connectionist approach. The present method does not use connections between cells, but introduces a field concept instead. If the fields are determined in accordance with the transformations familiar from fractal theory, then the solutions of problems that have some symmetry are forms of remarkable beauty. This way, a link is proposed between generative art and problem solving. It is conjectured that the ‘black box’ nature of connectionist systems can be replaced by an approach in which the solution of a problem coincides with a vivid visualization, also if the problems at hand are of a high-dimensional nature.
