Avatar Breeder is a genetic algorithm-based procedurally generative satirical artwork constructed by Daniel Upton and Jisun An in Dr. Harrell's graduate course LCC 6312: Design, Technology, and Representation. It is intended to undermine normative categories of identity encountered on bureaucratic forms and in everyday lived experience. In such discrete categorization systems, ethnic identities can be based on geography, nationality, ancestry, family, culture and sub-culture, religion, language, race or any combination of these. In this new ideological thread, how do people identified with mixed ethnicities inhabit the interstitial spaces and margins amidst these complex factors? How do essential categorizations of ethnicity and/or race properly reinforce or obliterate social illusions or personal histories.
