Off Book: Generative Art - Computers, Data, and Humanity

An intriguing combination of programmers, artists, and philosophers, these creators embrace a process that delegates essential decisions to computers, data sets, or even random variables. This allows important metaphors to arise in their work, calling attention to the relationship between humans and the computers that surround us, the mountains of information we generate, and the powerful impact that technology has on our relationships with each other. 

Featuring:

Luke Dubois, Generative Composer

Scott Draves, Generative Artist

Will Wright, Game Designer
