Gordon Monro — Shaping Evolution Prints
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: 55 x 55 cm, edition of 8 for each print, and 32 x 32 cm, edition of 15 for each print. The "DNA" prints are available in one size, 32 x 32 cm, edition of 8 for each print. All prints 2011.
The Shaping Evolution prints are related to the video Shaping Evolution.
