What is generative art?
Art created through the use of autonomous systems, such as algorithms or machines. The various implementation of these “generative” processes yields a range of results, from works that are rigidly ordered to those that rely largely on chance and randomization.
I first came across this thanks to the amazing Mathura
, and a Creative Coding workshop I happened upon. Being someone who's always been bad at making conventional art, it felt good to make pretty stuff.
My process is usually highly experimental. I might be just playing around, and come across some unexpected behaviour and then proceed to explore that.
These are some generative pieces I made in p5.js -
