An exhibition of art and nature-inspired computation

In the last few decades, nature and bio-inspired digital art has been attracting many researchers with background in arts and sciences, especially computer scientists and visual artists.

This exhibition is the first of its kind at the AISB convention and it incorporates various aspects of generating artworks using swarm intelligence, evolutionary algorithms, artificial neural networks, multi-agent systems, artificial life and any other algorithm or method that derives from the natural world.

TOPICS OF INTEREST

Submissions that relate to, but not limited to the following, are invited:

  • Nature inspired art: creating drawings, paintings, images, animations, sculptures etc
  • Information visualization: linking art, nature, and science
  • Visualising the invisible: visual presentation of scientific concepts and data
  • Robotic-based evolutionary art
  • Artificial intelligence or generative techniques for computer art

PUBLICATIONS

Artists are invited to submit their current digital artwork, or images of their work, along with a 2-4 page commentary describing the underlying techniques and the relationship to nature-inspired computation.

All accepted artwork will be printed in the Exhibition’s Catalogues.

Additionally, the best artwork will be chosen by the audience and a prize will be awarded.
