The paintings that you see on this web site are more than just images on your screen.

They are simulated organisms that exist in an electronic world.

The definition of their world is a simple one. Essentially, they exist, replicate and mutate in an attempt to satisfy what it is you think they should look like.

That is their whole purpose.

Like real organisms, they possess a genetic material that defines them. In this instance, their dna represents the the colors, shapes and locations of their brushstrokes (see Genetic Algorithm for more info).

Paintings that survive the critical eye of the collaborative audience go on to bear successive generations of paintings.

As time goes on the images mutate in ways that make them look more and more like what we think they should.
