Abstract

This paper describes an Interactive Evolutionary system for generating pleasing 3D images using a combination of Grammatical Evolution and Jenn3d, a freely available visualiser of Cayley graphs of finite Coxeter groups. Using interactive GE with some novel enhancements, the parameter space of the Jenn3d image-generating system is navigated by the user, permitting the creation of realistic, unique and award winning images in just a few generations. One of the evolved images has been selected to illustrate the proceedings of the EvoStar conference in 2011.
