Generative Art Summit Berlin

“I started creating generative art in the 90’s, learning from the computer graphics community that I found on the emerging internet, but in complete ignorance of the pioneers who had initiated the art form decades earlier. Even a decade later, outside of a small online community I didn’t know a single person in real life who knew of or understood generative art. Although my story has its own idiosyncratic aspects, as I went back and forth between art and science, it is clear that generative art in general has for a long time been fractured into small communities working independently. The blockchain brought attention and money to the art form, but much of its long history has been overlooked. So a conference celebrating this is overdue. I am personally excited to meet many of the pioneers and hear their perspectives on generative art: its past, present, and future. I suspect that we will find common threads connecting us, which so far have been hiding in the shadows.”
