«Genetic Images»

16 monitors allowed visitors of this interactive video installation (Ars Electronica, Linz, and Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, 1993) to view a form of computer simulated evolution as it was emerging. Then they could interact with tactile sensors placed on the ground to manipulate the imagery, to further make aesthetic choices in selecting images for the evolution of the virtual creatures, i.e. if these were allowed to further evolve in a next generation.
