Evolving abstract paintings - eArtWeb

This evolutionary art system is designed to be as general as possible. It makes it an easy to extend system, open to many different forms of art. The system also utilises a database to store the actions of its visitors, thereby creating an interesting pool of data for studying subjective user preferences regarding two dimensional visual art. It is completely written in Perl, making it very flexible and easy to maintain.
