"Shaping Evolution" at Pigment Gallery, Melbourne

I have an exhibition coming up at Pigment Gallery in Melbourne.

"Shaping Evolution" shows digital prints and a short video of imaginary creatures evolved by a computer program I have written. Each creature has "DNA" (a small amount of data in the computer) that generates its image. The creatures were evolved from random starting DNA by processes of "breeding", "mutation" and "survival of the fittest", carried out automatically in the computer. I am showing the "DNA" as well as the generated images.

Where: Pigment Gallery, Level 2, Nicholas Building, 37 Swanston St, Melbourne. (Enter via Cathedral Arcade, which is on Swanston Street, just before the Flinders Lane corner.)
Opening: Thursday April 14th, 5.30-7.30pm.
Exhibition dates: April 13 to April 30, 2011.
Gallery hours: Wed-Sat 12 noon - 5pm.
