í Final project: Create a systems project of your choice
Wed, Apr 24

Due last day of class

Create a systems project of your choice. Define system as you wish: as a finite set of parts that form a whole, or as rules or instructions that generate a result. Or define it as both.

Suitable projects range from the familiar to the obscure. Some examples:

1. A set of postage stamps
2. A set of book cover jackets
3. Wayfinding systems or waylosing systems
4. Process Book
5. Software
6. Short film using system as method
7. Installation/Live Act/Walking Tour
8. Typographic system
9. A system for organizing live information

Your end-of-semester deliverable depends on the project. We can discuss deliverables based on the project next week. For unprinted works, a process book may be your deliverable.

Be sure to take on a project that interests you and for which you can justifiably say is a system. Avoid client projects and assignments from other classes because outside constraints often effect the direction your project takes. Take risks, stretch your work in these final weeks of your junior year.

Handwriting using Capital Letters

í Script and execute a generative system
Wed, Apr 17

Due next week

Invent, script and execute a generative system. A generative system uses rules to dictate how a form or experience is produced.

Consider the readings and lecture when forming your system. Most relevant are themes of concept, algorithm, indeterminacy, randomness, automation, order and serendipity.

Your end product may take any form. The end product (medium, format and size) will likely be written into the system that you script. If your system does not dictate a format, it is up to you to package your project in a clear and engaging form.

This is a one week project. Spend the bulk of your time constructing your system, with the output being as “perfunctory affair” as possible. It is essential that you have your system written down and are able to articulate it clearly. Initiate and complete the project by next class.

Consult the lecture post for precedents


* To prioritize concept over end form
* To see what unexpected form results from rules, directions or constraints
* To create a finished work in a very short amount of time
