Abstract

Here, the technological simulation of life will be placed in the focus. In 1987, Christopher Langton was the first to formulate the idea of artificial life. It explores the laws of life and tries to generate them in computer simulations. The aim is to create artificial forms of life autonomously by evolutionary processes of chance. They have an intense effect on the virtual picture cultureľ but still: these new pictures also stay pictures.
