This special issue of Leonardo Electronic Almanac seeks to investigate the long history of generative and algorithmic art, from historical predecessors, to contemporary computational artworks. We invite proposals for articles examining generative and algorithmic art practices from the ancient world to the present day, and artists' projects and pictorial essays engaging with these procedures and structures.

Submissions might investigate issues of authorial control, predictability and unpredictability, chance and "aleatoric" methods of art making, or might propose theoretical and philosophical explorations of the concepts of hardware and software, the materiality of generative systems, video feedback as a generative system, the relationship between generative art and cinematic practices, or the historically expansive and ever expanding range of technologies capable of executing generative systems.

Our publication formats allow for full-color throughout and we encourage rich pictorial content where relevant and possible.

Senior editors for this issue: Lanfranco Aceti, Meredith Hoy, and Kris Paulsen.
