Welcome to the evo:art pilot study at Aston University. It is our pleasure to invite you to take part in this evolutionary art experiment.

evo:art pilot study is expected to improve our understanding of what humans consider nice.

The experiment will require that you perform the following:

  1. progress through the interactive evolutionary art system
  2. allow automatic evolution to produce one image based on your progress in step (1)
  3. state how much or how little you like the image produced by automatic evolution, and finally
  4. submit your best image.

You can expect to spend about 10-15 minutes on the experiment.
