In this talk Simon will describe the current state, and thinking behind, an emergent software system that he has developed to help generate a series of artworks. Simon will also show and discuss several artworks with particular focus on the technique’s application to generating landscape imagery. By way of this, he will also offer some of his own opinions on generative art.

In 2005 he was awarded a NESTA Fellowship to explore the production of highly detailed Fine Art images using generative and data-driven approaches. For this, he writes his own software. He has shown his work internationally and is represented by the London-based gallery TAG Fine Arts.
