Evolve Ring Silver

Silver Ring created with parametric modeling techniques & genetic codes
The two designers used artificial selection in genetic algorithms to unleash a population of ring designs. From this first generation they selected the most appealing individuals, which passed on attributes to the next generation. Iterating the evolutionary process they guided the ring's evolution step-by-step towards the silver ring's final shape. Thus survival-of-the-fittest becomes survival-of-the-most-aesthetic
