Mads is a practicing new media artist and designer located in Toronto, Canada. Using genetic algorithms to create a kind of ‘unnatural’ selection, her work challenges the heteronormative ideas that surround life and being, giving way to a magical alterity. She uses these digital outputs as blueprints for her laser cut acrylic sculptures, embodying fully formed entities with a tangible past and evolving future.

These videos are recordings of the genetic algorithm in action. Shapes are generated and selected based on a fitness rating. The final shapes are exported and used to create the digital sculptures and their physical counterparts.
