algorithmic collaboration: fractal flame

Works created by collaboration between a human and a machine.

The artist with a program which generates phrases for him to think about, for example “obtrusive grass”
The artist then thinks about the phrase while EEG (brainwaves) and other sensors read his brain’s and body’s reaction to the phrase as data.
Those data are then used to feed a generative program which outputs instructions to generate an artwork.
IFS fractal generation is used where the color palette is chosen by the computer from the phrase used in google image search results.
It then displays different versions of the artwork for the artist choose from by measuring his reactions to the images it displays, thus being a full creative collaboration with a machine.
