The Garden of Chances is a computer-generated artwork that makes a link between the realworld climate and a virtual garden of abstract, colored shapes.

In this article, the authors present the basic principles of the software and explain how they use it as a tool to explore both art processes and multi-agent issues of emergence and interpretation.
