About

L’algorithme permet de mettre en place des systĂšmes chargĂ©s de rĂ©soudre des problĂšmes ; d’instruction en instruction, son exĂ©cution mĂ©canique rĂ©pond Ă  l’intention qui justifie son existence. Pourtant, la mise en rĂ©seau d’instructions fait naĂźtre des systĂšmes d’une complexitĂ© telle que de nouvelles propriĂ©tĂ©s Ă©mergent spontanĂ©ment, Ă©chappant Ă  l’intention premiĂšre. L’algorithme devient alors crĂ©ateur de nouvelles formes, de nouvelles idĂ©es. En cela, le designer doit de se confronter Ă  cette Ă©mergence afin de susciter de nouvelles esthĂ©tiques. Supershapes utilise l’algorithme pour appliquer Ă  des objets les principes gĂ©nĂ©tiques de la thĂ©orie de l’évolution. DĂ©crits en termes de gĂȘnes et d’ADN, ces objets se reproduisent numĂ©riquement entre eux, tĂ©moignent de leur descendance, de mutations gĂ©nĂ©tiques, et prennent au fil des gĂ©nĂ©rations leur autonomie formelle. Supershapes favorise une émergence esthétique au travers d’un système algorithmique créatif. La relation homme-algorithme devient une symbiose à la fois computationnelle et sensible.

Disclaimer

Despite being untitled supershapes, this project isn't all about supershapes. The name stuck after experimenting with Paul Bourke's Supershapes (Superformula) paper (March 2002).

Most of the genetic algorithms are inspired by Daniel Shiffman's Nature of Code. If you want to learn more about GAs, don't listen to me, listen to him.

Usage

Each directory contains a single Processing sketch exploring one aspect of the evolution of shapes, and its implication regarding the practice of product design. The whole project being quite empirical, use those sketches at your own risks. If you want to learn more about a specific sketch, check the code (or even better, read Daniel Shiffman's Nature of Code ).
