[D]evolved.
Devolved is a generative work inspired by the amazing work of Karl Sims and his 'Evolved virtual creatures' where an evolution algorithm tries to solve a task. Just like in nature tons of different kinds of small variations of a species try to achieve this goal but the ones doing best are allowed to 'have childeren'. This is the process I tried to visualize, On the right you see the countless variations trying out different ways to succeed but never being able to see the light of day. But on the left the one that did it the best is allowed to go into the real world. A small ecosystem.
