Computer-generated digital prints
Click to reveal textDescription

The imaginary creatures in Shaping Evolution were evolved by a computer program written by the artist. 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.

The "creature" prints are available in two sizes, 57 x 57 cm and 32 x 32 cm. There is a unified edition of 8 for each print (that is, a total of 8 for both sizes together). The "DNA" prints are available in one size, 32 x 32 cm, edition of 8 for each print. All prints 2011.
