Named for Conrad Martens, the painter who accompanied Charles Darwin on the HMS Beagle, Conrad is a simple Genetic Algorithm which designs art based on user preferences. Learn more

Local Population


Start evolving your own local population of art

The first generation of images will be created entirely at random. By selecting your favourites, the algorithm soon learns which sorts of images you like and the art population will become more and more similar to your tastes.

Global Population

Global Genetic Art Population

Join the global population and generate art for everyone

The global population has been evolving since the start of the site. Everyone has access to it, and so the algorithm is attempting to find art which is appreciated by all users.



View and vote on the best creations

The gallery contains all of the genetic art created since the beginning of the site. Come here to see how your own genetic populations compare to others, and vote for your favourites.
