Generative XThe term generative art does not describe any art-movement . It is a method of making art. The term refers to how the art is made and does not take into account why it was made or what the content of the artwork is.
Generative art is now used to software-releated art works, but one of the first was Wolfgang Amadeus Mozartís Musikalisches Wurfelspiel (Musical Dice Game) in 1757, what was an early example of a generative system based on randomness. Generative artists such as Hans Haacke have explored processes of physical and biological systems in artistic context.
The computer and the internet has created a new generation of contemporary artists who are using the web to give the field of computational aesthetics an increasing audience. These artists are growing up with new technologies, their work is less techno-centric than previous generations, utilising state of the art technology for more aesthetic and cultural purposes across contemporary art.
Generative Art is the idea realized as genetic code of artificial events, as construction of dynamic complex systems able to generate endless variations. Each Generative Project is a concept-software that works producing unique and non-repeatable events, like music or 3D Objects, as possible and manifold expressions of the generating idea strongly recognizable as a vision belonging to an artist / designer / musician / architect /mathematician. This generative Idea / human-creative-act make an unpredictable, amazing and endless expansion of human creativity. Computers are simply the tools for its storage in memory and execution.
This approach opens a new era in Art, Design and Composition: the challenge of a new naturalness of the artificial event as a mirror of Nature. Variations, like in Bach music, are the best strong communication of the Idea.
