Karsten Schmidt on computational design, etc.08 October 2009
“…he is actively exploring current possibilities at the intersection of design, art, software development and education and applying these in a variety of fields. A strong conceptual thinker and always striving for maximum creative freedom, Karsten’s design approach is based on treating ideas as software at the heart, which in turn informs all other facets of each project.”
Part of what he talks about here is blurring the boundaries between “technical” and “artistic” skill, and how that generally breaks down within the current hierarchy of the industry. As a programmer who enjoys (but doesn’t have much opportunity to explore) code-driven creative design and animation, this speaks to me.
