The Mid-Ocean Studio, Brown University's SHAPE lab, and Goldsmiths College are collaborating on a prototype system for the automatic evolution of biomimetic sculpture using structural automata. This collaboration is resulting in effective, computerized means to autogenerate large, increasingly complex works of art, and allowing for a long-anticipated development of the desire to create works that reflect and respond to the environment they are in. We propose to create an installation that allows visitors to a site at Goldsmiths College to experience and interact with the development of our structures.
