Second Iteration : emergence
2nd international conference on generative systems in the electronic

5-7th December, 2001, Melbourne, Australia

- Call for Participation

Papers | Artist & Tech Sketches
Generative Audio & Video | Generative Art Software

Second Iteration : emergence is the event for anyone with an interest in

the relationship between generative processes, creativity and artistic
practice. The key theme will be emergence: the property of simple,
interacting processes to acquire characteristics and form beyond those
directly attributable to the sum of the individual components. Second
Iteration will investigate the discontinuities between poeisis and
physis, and how these processes influence the development of creative
ideas. Following on from the highly successful First Iteration (1999),
this year's conference will again be held in Melbourne, Australia.
