# 007 Re: MAGAZINE / A FORM OF TECHNOLOGICAL MIMESIS AN E-MAIL CONVERSATION WITH MARIUS WATZ
----- ----- -----
Colourful explosions of organic forms, visual structures that can only be percieved when the spectator allows herself to enter the flow of contemplative effects one has got viewing the artworks: generative practices have first been developed at the intersection of scientific and artistic settings to research visual patterns and form. Issue #007 of Re: MAGAZINE deals with nowadays generative systems which are used by artists, as well as in Design, Architecture and the culture of everyday life. Marius Watz, an artist concerned with generative systems for creating visual form, still, animated, or realtime, argues in an interview with CONT3XT.NET: "One of the privileges of Generative Art is that the author can easily be surprised by her own creation."
