The Art of Self-Assembly: the Self-Assemby of Art

pdf-format:
Dokument 1.pdf (318 KB)


Abstract

AARON is a semi-autonomous art-making program that has been under continuous development for nearly forty years. This paper discusses the origins and development of two critical features in it's most version; a coloring algorithm and an algorithmic shape generator. It concludes that for the foreseeable future, "computational creativity" does not so much describe the creative capabilities of a computer program as the nature of the collaborative relationship between program and programmer.
