Elegant as an algorithm, clear as a program, and as enthralling as a video game, Form+Code is a powerful tool, both as a tutorial and as an in-depth analysis of the aesthetics of the information age.
Form+Code offers a concise overview of computation in artistic and design practices, but it isn't a textbook. It's filled with beautiful images but it isn't a coffee table book. It is a manual for those of us searching for alternative aesthetics and methods of creation. It provides views into other worlds which exist beyond the familiar.
Form+Code illuminates creative possibilities for code across a wide range of fields, demonstrating its potential to enliven existing forms and build new models for expression for artists, designers, and architects alike.
This incredibly rich study of the history and possibilities of creating media through code is a must-have reference collection.
The nature of form in the digital age is trapped in the invisible realm of code. Form+Code makes that world visible to the community that stands to gain the most from it: artists and designers.
At long last, here is a publication that looks comprehensively at the contemporary digital medium with clarity, at its recent past and into the future. This book is filled with the most beautiful and intelligent images you can find in one book on digital design.
