Symposium: Do Androids Paint Electric Sheep?

I thought this might be of interest to folks on this list. My talk may
even include some Ruby examples. Sorry for the cross-posting.

Announcing "Do Androids Paint Electric Sheep", a symposium at Gray
Area Foundation for the Arts on Saturday, April 3rd, 2010 at 7:00PM.

An in-depth analysis of the algorithm and its evolution within
procedural, rule-based creative works. Join us, as five experts
represent diverse perspectives from dance, mathematics, literature,
engineering, and knitting. The discussion will cover the use of the
algorithm in all phases of artistic endeavor: from creation, to
analysis, to the algorithm being the product itself. Topics will cover
recent developments of the algorithm in artistic works, the aesthetic
impact of algorithms, and the practical tradeoffs between control and
chaos inherent in their use. The five short talks will be followed by
Q&A and an informal donation-based reception. No one turned away for
lack of funds.

Panelists: Terre Unit�� Parker, Andrew (Andy) W. Schmeder, Rachel Beth
Egenhoefer, Christian Nagler, and Ian Smith-Heisters.
