Harold Cohen. The Art of Self-Assembly: the Self-Assemby of Art. In Computational Creativity: An Interdisciplinary Approach. Dagstuhl Seminar Proceedings, Volume 9291, Schloss Dagstuhl – Leibniz-Zentrum für Informatik (2009)


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.
