Evolutionary Art

Art touched by evolution. It might sound like an intervention to the less-scoped artist, but nevertheless, its true. Evolutionary algorithms can create eye candy abstract art. A genetic programming framework evolves an expression (formula) which outputs color values for a given co-ordinate in the picture. Fitness is assigned to each such formula based on how aesthetically pleasing the picture turns out to be. With proper human guidance, you can get pretty good works of art. More information.

Hi Rinku.
If you allow me to interfere, I believe the link to more information will confuse the audience looking for a definition of features and goals, showing them the procedures of just a project in particular, global enough but the concepts are not defined.
After years of working in evolutionary art, I think may be adding this one: Basic Features of the Evolutionary Art, by G√ľnter Bachelier might give the accurate approximation the issue deserves, or the reader needs.
Have a great week.
Cristian.

Well, I happen to be working with evolutionary algorithms, but not in particular for evolutionary art. So, I am much not aware of how much has been done in the area. Just thought its cool, and would include it here. Thanks for the pointers.
