Artificial Life - Genetic Art


Ars Electronica 93 dealt with the science of artificial life, with the origins of life and with the question of how life was able to come into being, how it developed and what forms it might possibly take in the future. Chances and risks of this new branch of science were discussed during symposia on the topics of artificial intelligence, genetic engineering and immortality.
Works from various different fields (bio-genetic art, virtual creatures, genetic manipulation, robots...) were brought together under the collective term of "Genetic Art".
A large part of these works simulated processes of life by means of modern technology and on the other hand reflected possible sequels of synthetic simulation and synthetic creation of life in a critical way.
