Digital generative art refers to artworks that are created with the use of an autonomous system, implemented through a piece of computer software. The ingenuity and innovation of the artwork depends on the algorithm/logic of the computer program that the artist develops. The existing creative practices often adopt the use of classical physics (Reas, Fry, 2007), and biology (Shiffman, 2012) as the starting points to create animations that reflect motions in either two or three dimensional space. The project proposes the studies of numerical techniques employed in other disciplines such as financial forecast, meteorology, and geographical information system, with a view to enrich the creative repositories of digital generative art. The research findings will be beneficial to digital art practitioners, and also the creative industries that work with non-photorealistic rendering for films/animations.
