XYZ: Virtual Connections.

The Unplugged Evolutionary Algorithm has been applied for the second time -first one shown at IEEE CEC 2013, Cancún, to produce the collective work displayed. The team of six artists have produced six works per week -generation- by selecting and crossing over art-works that act as parents every week. Selection, crossover, mutation, elitism... are concepts whose meaning is translated by artists to every painting produced.

Three generations have been selected for display, that include eighteen works produced during the first three weeks of the experiment.

Starting in March 2016, nationals from visa-exempt countries who are flying or transit through Canada will need an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA). The exception is for U.S. citizens and travellers with a valid visa for Canada. The online authorization process only takes a few minutes and costs CAD $7. The authorization is valid for five years or until your passport expires. To find out more, please visit the Canada Border Services site here.

Visitors from some countries still need regular visitor visas, as well as those intending to study or work in Canada. For information regarding visas and entry requirements for Canada, please visit the Citizenship and Immigration Canada website or call 1.888.242.2100 (in Canada). From outside Canada, please contact the nearest Canadian embassy or consulate in your region.
