butterfly plans

Butterfly Plans is a study for my poem “Omégaville,” to appear in The Purpose of Reality (Meerkat Press, 2022). Omégaville butterflies understand life on earth, its tracks traced in chlorophyll and haemoglobin, its castles of blood and monuments of stone. (Click image for larger version.)

The artwork was evolved with the visual evolution engine (VEE), my software that seeks unexpected realms, rather than using standard AI techniques to mimic existing art. Cyclic nonlinear desaturation (CYNDE) was used in the evolution.
