Thanks, Antoine. I'm reading the link. But I just wanted to say that I think you're getting at something that's really important to generative art (and the random). Because part of the contemporary significance of generative art does indeed relate to evolution and and its significance philosophically. The idea that things like eyeballs do not require a creator to have designed them but, instead, can have evolved without a designer--and the role of the random therein--underlie something of the spirit of contemporary generative art, which, at least for some, spiritually, is a kind of an exploration of the beautiful and potently fecund possibilities of generative processes.

I guess I have been quite influenced by Jacques Monod's book Chance and Necessity a long time ago.

So I use a lot of chance (randomness) in my artworks that deal with the strange movements of (artificial) living beings.. Both inside, and outside the beings.

Very interesting poetical writing about what you do with randomness, Antoine. Am very interested to hear more about it.
