GENerativeART: Algorithms as Artistic Tool

The Alberta Society of Artists is proud to present “GENerativeART: Algorithms as Artistic Tool” a presentation by Dr. James R. Parker.

Generative art is the art of the algorithm where artists must carefully design the nature of their work and then implement it as a computer program. He posits that computational tools can be used to augment and express human imagination. And, of course, it is fun. As Dr. Parker states, “If you are not having fun then you are doing it wrong”.

James R. Parker is a Professor of Art at the University of Calgary whose expertise ranges from computer simulation, image processing, artificial intelligence, game design, & generative art.

The talk will be on April 22, 2-3 pm at the ASA Art Gallery, #222, 1235 – 26 Ave. SE, Calgary, Alberta and will be live-streamed through a link on the ASA website.
