find our facebook event right here!

generative art (gen art) is a form of art where the image arises through algorithms and mathematical formulas. the artist sets rules (parameters) for the artwork to follow. thus, the artwork behaves according to these rules, but not fully; the artist leaves some room for ‘surprises’. 

our first-year students will show you the results of their journey in finding what gen art can bring them.
