Artificial ecosystems extend traditional evolutionary approaches in generative art. They offer several unique and attractive traits, however employing them as part of a creative practice requires an understanding of their complex dynamics. This project explores the ecosystem as a generative mechanism, as systems art and as metaphor in the context of electronic media and artificial life practice, theory and culture.
