sketch_071017b : Built with Processing:
Guided evolution. There are 9 random trees created in the population. Click on the applet and hover. If you click on the lower half of the tree it's moved to the middle and 8 variations -- children -- are grown. It's genes are passed down, but not exactly. All of the children resemble but are different from their parent. If you click on the top of the tree you can watch it grow again. Go to the blog post if you'd like to comment.

It's better to select from multiples of eight variations by clicking the trunk of the middle tree. The surprise is that most children are just twigs.
