Generator.x touring exhibition
The Generator.x exhibition opened in Oslo at The National Gallery, in the Art Hall at Tullinløkka. The opening took place as part of the Generator.x conference at Atelier Nord. After the initial showing in Oslo the exhibition will tour Norway until it closes in December 2007.

The exhibition is thematically divided into two sections: “Code as Material” and “Code as Method”.
1. Code as material
Rather than simply using software as a tool, these artists have code as their primary artistic material. They create their work through dynamic systems incorporating algorithmic rules, simulation of physical properties and complexity theory.
The works in this section have been created especially for Generator.x, and are shown as projections (Reas, Lia and Oschatz) and sound works (Lossius).
2. Code as method
The works in this section show the use of generative strategies applied to problems from design and architecture. They include innovative visualizations of complex information sources, computational approaches to architectural problems or software for new types of expression. The works are shown as large-scale prints.
The Generator.x exhibition is curated by Marius Watz and produced by the National Museum of Art, Design and Architecture.
