In the exhibition was possible to see the system working and several posters generated using this approach. The poster’s content was retrieved and/or inspired in the posters displayed during the events of May 1968 (France) and Coimbra Academic Crisis of 1969 (Portugal).

Based on the Victorian poster production method, we developed an evolutionary system that generates typographical posters. Outcomes are evaluated in a semi-autonomous way, allowing the user to guide the process according to his/her preferences. In this artwork, we present example outcomes of the system and its generating process using a typographic superfamily. [source]
