Generative Art Projects

Exploratory Generative Study

Create Exploratory Generative Study

Focus on the main principles and aspects of generativity that we discussed in Week 2 and Week 3:
Logic of a Generative Artwork and
Algorithmic Thinking and Procedural Literacy.

Explore them through developing your work within one chosen medium: image, sound, text, video, animation, physical object/installation, web-based work, game, etc.

The work can be
– Analog or digital,
– Interactive or non-interactive.

Aim for
– Simplicity and clarity.
– Cultivating your approach to project development:
concept>quick exploration>prototyping>testing>finalizing.
– Learning through making.

Present your ideas to the class next week 3 Sep.

Document your progress weekly at the OSS Process category.

Final presentation of the work due Week 7 (24 Sep).

Generative Artwork

Create Generative Artwork

Respond to the topic: Surprise.

Some of the aspects to reflect on:
– What constitutes surprise?
– What determines its qualities?
– How surprise figures in different contexts such as the arts, everyday life, technology (e.g. in classical information theory by Claude Shannon), etc.?
– How does it figure in your own life and experience?

Find out and explore other interesting aspects of surprise.

Shape up your reflections into a coherent concept and transform it into a work that engages a broader audience.

You are free to choose any feasible medium: image, sound, text, video, animation, physical object/installation, web-based work, etc., or any combination of these.

The artwork can be analog or digital, interactive or non-interactive.

Aim for clarity of learning through making, and for effectiveness of the finished work.

Document your progress weekly at the OSS Process category.

Showcasing the work is due final Week 13 (12 Nov).
