The nexus between art and science has been increasingly recognized as a research area. In this paper the author discuss how she used genetic algorithms for her art practice. She refers to technical aspects only where they are directly relevant to her process. The algorithm simulates drawing by rendering image sequences using a target image such as a photograph. The first rendered image is a random placement of brush strokes. The final image closely resembles the target image. She used the image sequences to create a video work interrogating contemporary Vietnamese icons — mannequins and motorcycles.
