  abstract =     "A new research frontier for evolutionary 2D image
                 generation is the use of mathematical models of
                 aesthetics, with the goal of automatically evolving
                 aesthetically pleasing images. This paper investigates
                 the application of similar models of aesthetics towards
                 the evolution of 3-dimensional structures. We extend
                 existing models of aesthetics used for image evaluation
                 to the 3D realm, by considering quantifiable properties
                 of surface geometry. Analyses used include entropy,
                 complexity, deviation from normality, 1/f noise, and
                 symmetry. A new 3D L-system implementation promotes
                 accurate analyses of surface features, as well as
                 productive rule sets when used with genetic
                 programming. Multi-objective evaluation reconciles
                 multiple aesthetic criteria. Experiments resulted in
                 the generation of many models that satisfied multiple
                 criteria. A human survey was conducted, and survey
                 takers showed a statistically significant preference
                 for high-fitness highly-evolved models over low-fitness
                 unevolved ones. This research shows that aesthetic
                 evolution of 3D structures is a promising new research
                 area for evolutionary design.",
