Abstract

Artificial Life models constitute a rich compendium of tools for the generative arts; complex, self-organizing, emergent behaviors have great interactive and generative potential. But how can we go beyond simply visualizing scientific simula- tions and manipulate these models for use in design and creative art contexts? You Pretty Little Flocker is a proof of concept study in expanding and exploring the aesthetic state space of a model for generative design. A modified version of Reynold’s Flocking algorithm (1987) is described in which the space of possible images is extended and navigable in a way which at once provides user control and maintains generative autonomy.
