Generative Gestaltung

Hartmut Bohnacker, Benedikt Groß, Julia Laub, Claudius Lazzeroni (Hrsg.)

Erschienen im Verlag Hermann Schmidt Mainz

Generative Design

The book »Generative Design« describes the creation of images by using codes. An image is not created manually, but instead by translating a visual idea into a set of rules and then implementing it in a programming language. Such a program can not only create a single image but also design complete visual worlds when parameters are changed.
We, the authors, want this book to provide a solid foundation for the use of this process. The book section “Basic Principles” illustrates generative techniques in relation to four foundation areas of design: color, shape, typography, and image. The designer’s repertoire is further expanded in the section “Complex Methods” by combining a number of principles on the basis of six larger-scaled examples. In this section you will also find explanations of advanced techniques.

Note this is not exactly a book on vvvv but most of the examples described are available as vvvv patches, see parasitic-design-a-vvvv-beginners-cookbook

Xini: @joreg now i got hold of a projector and i tested, should be fine! :D @joreg

joreg: i'm not exactly sure what "old problem" you're talking about. have you tested if it still exists?

~5d ago

Xini: tx @joreg . Do you think it's better for me to install a 32bit version of vvvv, or is there another workaround for that old problem?
