This system draws simultaneously with a human. Like a ‘virtual pen on a virtual canvas’ the system’s agents respond to the user’s drawing and produces their own drawings on the same canvas. The user cannot directly control the virtual agents, but they can make new agents to add to the artwork.
As the user draws ‘a number of autonomous agents come into existence from the trace and independently start roaming throughout the canvas leaving a trace behind them. The human can then decide the location of the origin of the agents but he is neglected control on their evolution. The behaviour of the agents can be modelled on any mathematical function.’
