Curran Zhang – Looking Outwards -12

For this looking outwards, I was more interested in interactive art works that uses the human and computational design to create something new. Projects that I was interested in was the Digital Type Wall by SEA Design (2012) and Vanishing Points by Rafael Lozano- Hemmer(2018). Digital Type is an animation sequence that changes the array of letters into different font types. Out of 6000 possible combinations, one is chosen at random. This allows visitors to observe the changes and various types of “language” created by the same letters. Vanishing Points is an interactive art piece that changes the vanishing point of the drawing based on the location of the closest viewer. These projects gear me towards something that is more of an artistic game or interactive program that allows the user to create amazing drawings.
