2012-13 4_Adventures in Computation

This short project will investigate the formal aesthetic possibilities arising from the intermingling of the intangible world of electronic data and the tangible, phenomenal world of materials. What opportunities do we have as designers to “design” the nature of the materializing relationship between the abstract, inner data space of the computer, and the computation-dependent things that surround us? How can we create meaningful character and grain in electronic materials while avoiding a hokey nostalgia for a pre-digital age?
