Formal mutations: Pursuing unintended consequences

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

British anthropologist James Burke described the history of our civilization as a constant shaping of tools by people, and consequentially shaping people and the way we think by the tools we create. This dictum is as relevant today as it was in the past and applies particularly well to digitally created art and design. In light of this observation, digital design methodologies and tools play a critical role, informing our perception about reality while shaping our expectation towards reality.
