Living Art, Week 2
In this session (my first in the class) we discussed the definition of "generative art" and saw examples brought in from other students in the class of what they believed to be generative artists, discussing whether or not we agreed with their assessment. It was a very useful session, as I left with a much broader view of the field, encompassing many projects beyond the traditional fractals, cellular automata, and the like. As such, I decided to forego my presentation of Wolfram and Mandelbrot in favor of a quick demo of my previous work with Chua's oscillator as art form.
For the class, I hope to execute a simulation of the northern lights (Aurora Borealis) for my father's streetlamp art piece.
