Harm van den Dorpel’s “Mutant Garden” Blooms in Amsterdam

Harm van den Dorpel’s “Mutant Garden” opens at Upstream Gallery, Amsterdam, surveying the artist’s research into evolutionary algorithms. The show, like van den Dorpel’s eponymous software, is divided into a “garden” for breeding artwork (image: Mutant Garden Autobreeder, 2021) and a “lab” for sharing process. “The tension between simplicity of computational rules and complexity in outcome, holds the key to understanding life, and by extension, our aesthetic appreciation of it.”
