evolutionary design for the other sort of designers   (+2)  [vote for, against]
nice aesthetic shapes and designs by selection

for designers not doing the technical stuff,with physical simulations ,but the others,an evolutionary design system

after being given the breif and starting to make a number of quick drawings[the brainstorm?/thumbnails?]the designer [or artist]might usually make some different designs then choose a good one to make up fully. instead, why not put the drawings /in separate parts perhaps[or better yet cad files]into a small computer,to be worn by the designer/artist. then ,walking around out of the office/studio have the computer vary dimensions,angles on the drawings, maybe split and combine the thumbnails,and display them on an eyepeice. then eyepeice note iris size whilst showing a mutant design,and [chinese jade dealer bit] better 'fitness' for more iris opening on a drawing. then perhaps see, by selection, a good looking drawing

A painting done by similar means http://www.melania.com/freeart/index.html
If I understand you correctly, that is. Don't know about the chinese jade dealer though. [PotatoStew, Sep 17 2001, last modified Oct 21 2004]

[sp:
- comma-space, not space-comma. (You get it right towards the end. And it really is jarring.)
- space before [ and after ], and after ? unless followed by other punctuation.
- full stop (.) at the end of a sentence.
- I before E except after C in: "brief" "eyepiece"
- "eyepiece notes iris"]

Chinese jade dealer bit? Huh?

Interesting idea. If we apply this to arbitrary visual art and an arbitrary audience, you could have a whole gallery of self-evolving paintings that change in such a way that they're attractive to the people that cared to look at them.

I truthfully commented on the painting

Man I can hardly wait for the survival of the fittest fad in popular culture to be over.

So, let me get this straight so that I may understand it better

This setup riffs on "storyboard" drawings, trying out many possibilities, and "knows" whether a given riff (iteration) is "good" or "bad" by monitoring the pupil size?

When sentence structure is not constrained, you can actual seee people think

The iris idea although not new is fascinating in this concept. Others come to mind. Education, sales (unfortunately), bar come-ons. The list is endless.
