The E-volver is an 'image breeding machine', which takes inspiration from the methods of evolutionary biology to produce colourful,ever-changing images. The software generates artificial pixel organisms made up of thirteen genes that together determine how the organism will behave on the monitor. The unusual collaboration between an "image-breeding-machine" and a human "gardener" results in intriging and coherent images.
What is your view on the coronavirus?
Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.Comment
