Extra info for Algorithmic Aesthetics: Computer Models for Criticism and Design in the Arts
Each aesthetic system contains an interpretation algorithm and a corresponding reference algorithm. These algorithms vary from aesthetic system to aesthetic system depending on the interpretative conventions modeled, but have common input-output relations in all aesthetic systems. These invariant relations are specified now. The interpretation algorithm of an aesthetic system encodes the conventions that define what are possible interpretations. The interpretation algorithm has a sequence of symbols as input and produces a sequence of symbols as output.
In aesthetic systems based on the constructive mode of understanding, the input component of an interpretation of an object may be considered as instructions or as data. When the input component is considered as instructions, the conventions encoded by the interpretation algorithm are usually very general. 3 When the input component is considered as data, the 2 For a classic discussion of how schemata of this type are used in art see E. H. Gombrich, Art and Illusion (Princeton, 1960). A computer program which generates drawings of faces based on a fixed schema is described in M.
2 38 Interpretation 39 by which the description of an object is connected with an interpretation of the object. The aesthetic system in a criticism algorithm or a design algorithm provides the basis for interpreting or understanding objects in terms of their descriptions, that is, for defining interpretations and for connecting descriptions of objects with interpretations. An interpretation of an object tells how the object is understood in terms of its description using the assumptions and knowledge comprising some given interpretative conventions.
