What Is Generative Art?


Generative art is art created by writing programs and algorithms, instructions for the computer, to create artworks. At the centre of this is the creative coding process; the writing of code to artistically design the final work.

It is synonymous with computer art, code art, creative coding, algorithmic art and new media art.


How Is Generative Art Made?

Unlike traditional artistic processes where the artist directly interacts with the work, generative artists indirectly affect the final output. Through introducing elements of random and semi-randomness into the code each drawing the program makes is different. The degree of difference between final outputs of a program is an artist choice designed by the creative coder.

The role of the generative artist is to design this domain of the final work, the range of outputs. They do not author a single work but in fact many variations that the program can output - leading to beautiful and unanticipated results.

The process is an artistically intimate one, with algorithms being designed over long periods of time, with each iteration getting closer to the artist's vision.


What Is Generative Art Used For?

Algorithmic art is used in many design and technology fields. It is used in:

  • - Architecture.
  • - Live audio-visual performance.
  • - Medical visualisation.
  • - Fine Art.
  • - Commercial Design
  • - Product Design.
  • - Fashion.
  • - Education.
  • - Data Visualisation.
  • - And many, many more..

How To Start Creative Coding?

Computer art and media art couldn't be easier to start learning today. Be it through websites, videos or books there is a tonne of resources out there to help start creative coding for beginners:



  • - LeanOpenGL: Great intro to OpenGL, if you want to go deep into computer graphics then you need to get to know how GPUs work.

  • - The Coding Train: Dan Shiffman’s Yt series on everything Processing and P5. Fantastic resource for algorithms even if you use other programming languages.

  • - The Cherno: Brilliant Yt series on C++ game dev and OpenGL. Very relevant for creative coding.

  • - OfBook: The best tutorials on using OpenFrameworks. I advise downloading the examples code though for the best way to learn alongside this site.

  • - ShaderToy: Shader writing! (Get ready for your laptop to sound like a jet engine).

  • - IQ’s Blog: The Inventor of ShaderToy and graphics legend has an amazing blog with some really great gems in there for intermediate to advanced level graphics programmers.
