Challenge 2: Evolutionary Art

The task was to evolve images using PonyGE [1]. The best single image
or collection of up to 10 images, as selected by the Committee, would
be declared the winner. With the winner’s agreement the images might
form part of a GECCO 2012 Art Competition entry. Entrants were free to
modify PonyGE in any way, including the use of non-interactive
fitness. The deadline was May 4th 2012.

The winning entry was Dave’s “Mechano”. It and other notable entries are shown below. Dave’s prize of 1 burrito was awarded in Tolteca the following Thursday. A wonderful time was had by all.

[1] Save images from PonyGE using
the “s” key, and zoom in on a single image using right-click.
