A generative book that presents programmed images by various artists. Each print in process will be calculated individually – which makes every single book unique.
Digital technologies are successful tools in contemporary design. Their ascent, however, is a continuation of well-tried and reliable analog processes. No matter whether paper or digital approach — the designer organizes elements by hand. She devises aesthetic rules for her work and plays around with them until she achieves a final product.
At this point, generative design comes in and sets out to generate products through digital tools programmed by the designer. The individual impulse triggers a chain reaction of processes depending on a set of mathematical rules. This is a useful feature for designers since it serves as a conceptional pathfinder towards the final product.
Code is the computer-internal binary system brought into a form humans are capable of understanding. Code becomes more and more accessible and can be used without specialist training. Ever-faster processors facilitate sets of rules that could not be rendered in any analog way. These rules establish the visual and conceptual independence of the medium.
