Generative Art Summit Berlin

“I think of generative art as being any process, analogue, digital and especially biological (for obvious reasons). To me generative art is a process in which the output of that process feeds back into it in whatever ways available thus taking place over time.

Thus it is a process not an object. I have a site on early video art in Australia though that still has a long way to go.
Meanwhile thanks for accepting me into your fold.”
