Generative Art: Algorithms as Artistic Tool presents both simple programming concepts and generative art principles in the same book. Generative Art, a relatively new form of art, is the art of the algorithm where an artist must carefully design the nature of the work and then implement it as a computer program. This book presents a set of novel approaches to this subject. Existing books on this subject confront the topic through the lens of programming. This book does that, but also presents approaches to creating art using art and design best practices. Content is arranged according to the problem that is to be solved. Readers will have access to code used in the book through the book’s web site and video tutorials are also available for each chapter.
