[Nettime-nl] Designing with genetic algorithms at Transnatural

The Transnatural Festival presents a cutting edge cultural, natural
and technological experience. The exhibition opens today at 7 PM and
will run until October 8th at Science Center NEMO in Amsterdam. The
third edition of the festival showcases future scenarios and recent
innovation from the creative industry and the business community. This
year the program consists of a month-long interdisciplinary
exhibition, a two-day conference and a weekend of performances and
music. The workshops and inspiration day program during Transnatural
Festival is hands on and suitable for individuals and groups from the
creative industry and commercial sector.

As a Nettime mailinglist member, you might like this workshop:

In this workshop programmers, designers, artists, 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

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 programmer and
artist Luis Rodil-Fernández.
