Can neural networks help us work with generative systems, navigating uncharted territory to find places where rich transitional behaviour occurs? Can they free us to explore more unruly systems than we'd otherwise be able to work with?

Andy Lomas is a computational artist, mathematician and Emmy award-winning supervisor of computer-generated effects. His artwork explores how complex sculptural forms can be created emergently by simulating growth processes. Inspired by the work of Alan Turing, D'Arcy Thompson and Ernst Haeckel, it exists at the boundary between art and science.
