[Nettime-nl] Transnatural academy - Simple Genetic Algorithms

*Simple Genetic Algorithms*

In this workshop designers, artists, programmers and electro-tinkerers
develop ideas for new, simple genetic algorithms that produce image or
sound or that fabricate objects. Genetic algorithms are computational
techniques that mimic biological evolutionary processes. Applied in design
fields, they can generate unpredictable form solutions and variability in
answer to design goals.
After an artistic and technical introduction participants generate ideas in
 groups with mixed skills and develop their ideas in a guided process. The
workshop will be introduced and coached by artist and engineer Luis

The workshop consists of three sessions spread over 6 weeks. The process
will be documented in a blog on the Transnatural.org.

The aim is to develop work and documentation material that will be part of
the exhibition Things That Mind Their Own Business at the Transnatural
exhibition in may 2012 in the NEMO Science Center.

The workshop consists of 3 events that take place over a 6 week period. The
entire process will be followed by a blog on www.transnatural.org
