During this workshop we will go over various definitions and an historic overview of generative art from the 18th century to today.

Generative art refers to art that in whole or in part has been created with the use of an
autonomous system. [wikipedia]

Generative art is a term given to work which stems from concentrating on the processes involved in producing an artwork, usually (although not strictly) automated by the use of a machine or computer, or by using mathematic or pragmatic instructions to define the rules by which such artworks are executed. [Adrian Ward]

Generative art refers to any art practice where the artist creates a process, such as a set of natural language rules, a computer program, a machine, or other procedural invention, which is then set into motion with some degree of autonomy contributing to or resulting in a completed work of art. [Philip Galanter]
