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.
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.
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.
