The starting point of this workshop come from the studies of Ernst Heinrich Haeckel’s. He was a biologist supporter of evolutionism and he dedicate part of his life to describe and name thousands of new species of the natural world.
The published artwork of Haeckel is titled “Kunstformen der Natur” (Artistic forms of nature – 1898) and included over 100 detailed, multi-colour illustrations of animals and sea creatures. If you’re doing some research for organic shapes, this book is a nice place to start. This project aimed to find a possible point of contact between nature, theories of evolution and programmatic and generative art. Is it possible?
