Creating Your First Generative Collection.
Generative art is a form of art that relies on algorithms and computational systems to create complex and unique artworks. It's a fascinating field that offers endless possibilities for creativity and experimentation. In this post, we'll explore the power of generative art and how it can be applied to creative works.
Generative art can provide new inspiration, and a start point for creative exploration.
One of the hardest parts of starting any new project is being confronted with a blank canvas (or a blank page). One of the key advantages of generative art is that can help give you an entry point By using algorithms to generate ideas or inspiration, you can jumpstart your process and explore new ideas and forms.
And, you can dedicate more time to concept development. Another advantage of generative art is its ability to create large volumes of work quickly and efficiently. By automating the creation process, you can produce a vast amount of work in a short amount of time. This can be particularly useful for digital content, brand asset libraries, or large-scale installations, where a high volume of work is required.
Generativity can also unlock unseen angles on a project. Sometimes, it can feel like the rug is being pulled out from underneath you. But sometimes, these randomized outputs reveal something really beautiful; something that you wouldn't have predicted. More on that, here.
Starting your first generative art project.
Over the course of the past year, we've been working on a new generative art tool that allows creators to build game-ready generative art projects in Unreal Engine. We've also developed new templates for Figma to help artists build and test generative works. If you're curious about learning more about generative art, here's a good resource to get started. And, you can also connect with and collaborate with other creators on Discord.
Generative art offers an exciting opportunity to explore new avenues of creativity and self-expression. With a wealth of tools and resources available, anyone can try creating generative art and unleash their creativity in new and exciting ways. The power of generative art lies in its ability to break down barriers, push boundaries, and open up a world of endless possibilities.
