NEvAr is an interactive evolutionary digital art generator. The user chooses an image that NEvAR uses to generate a new set of images, the user selects which generated images they like the best, and the artwork evolves based on their selection.
‘The fact that NEvAr is an interactive tool has the advantage that a skilled user can guide the evolutionary process in an extremely efficient way. She/he can predict which images are compatible, detect when the evolutionary process is stuck in a local optimum, etc. In other words, the user can change its evaluation criteria according to the context in which the evaluation is taking place.’
