"Do something, do something to that, and then do something to that."

"The current popularity of generative design processes in which designers use algorithms to create a variety of different outcomes, instead of focussing on one, definitive result is closely linked to the use of digital design tools. This development has changed our perception of design as the creation of the single author. What could happen when the approach fostered by digital generative designers would be applied to an analogue world? A world in which obsolete machines like hand-powered alarm clocks, walkman and mechanical toys take centre stage?
My experiments in this domain of obsolete machines reveal their internal algorithms. Instead of creating these algorithms, I simply adopt and then visualize them.”
here’s a video of the Tin-Toy Chicken experiment. More videos as well as the complete series here.

"That is why I sometimes hate architects so much. To erect a building is such a brutal thing, such an act of aggression. Painting is never like that… One can look away. It is fortunate that one cannot turn one’s paintings into buildings."
