Generative Art: Algorithms as Artistic Tool (Mass Market Paperbound)
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. In the book, J.R. Parker presents computer programming concepts and generative art principles as a way to create algorithmic computer art using art and design best practices. In addition, readers have access to program codes and video tutorials through the book's web site at http: //genart.ca.
About the Author
About the Author Dr. J.R. Parker ("Call me Jim") studied mathematics and computer science before ending up as a Professor of Art at the University of Calgary. His expertise ranges from computer simulation, image processing, artificial intelligence, game design, and generative art. When asked, he claims to be an expert in 'complex interacting systems', but don't ask him to tie a half hitch. He lives on a small ranch in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains where he helps raise small animals and Tennessee Walking Horses. He's also quite a cook, and was the original bass player for the 1970s band "Detour".
