Rama Hoetzlein, the cofounder of Game Design Initiative at the University of Cornell in the United States, is a media artist and computer engineer. His work focuses on the fields of artificial intelligence and digital graphic design, within a surreal perspective.

Social Evolution presents the simulation of a society made up of genetically developed individuals who can practice daily activities—eat, sleep, run, kill, reproduce—and pass them on to their offspring. This simulation raises the question of what are the consequences of the idea of competition as a process resulting from millions of years of evolution applied to living, evolving society.
