Areas of interest include, but are not restricted to:

    • L Systems (Lindenmeyer's artificial botany)
    • Computer Viruses
    • Dawkin's Biomorphs

    Interested in applications of these ideas to:

    • computer animation
    • interactive sculpture

    The concert component will include diffused electroacoustic music as well as pieces played by live performers and other "autonomous agents" (computers or robots), and could include non-technical systems demonstrations. The exhibition component will include computer graphics, prints and photographs, robots and autonomous agents, video and quot;life" computer animation, as well as interactive displays and presentations. The focus of this event will be the artistic manifestation of artificial life in any form. If you are currently working in this area and would like to participate, please contact:
