See how mathematics and evolution can create art with international guest Professor Daniel Ashlock.
Many mathematical processes can create complex and potentially artistic images. These same processes can also create an unpleasant mess and, typically, the messes outnumber things that are visually pleasing. One of the most powerful tools for discovering beauty is by using simple, digital versions of Darwin’s theory of evolution. This technique is quite simple, except that math is used to identify images as interesting, artistic, or complex.
The audience is invited to answer the question: Can math, using evolution, make art?
