Generative Art

In the IEEE Computer Graphics and Applications (60th anniversity special issue), Gary Singh in talking about the cover quotes from Philip Galanter as describing generative art as
[referring] to any art pracise where the artist uses a system, such as a set of natural language rules, a computer program, a machine, or other procedural invention which is then set into motion with some degree of autonomy to or resulting in a complex work of art.
I think this designation (among others) applies to our project.

Also, Mary Scott has reminded us that a local artist, Arlene Stamp, has been developing a generative art system in collaboration with Tobias Isenberg (from our own Interactions Lab), which you can play with (requires Java).
