The Art of Form and Code

It's about creating a system that allows for possibilities. When I was creating the States of Mind console for the Group Therapy exhibition I would always end up generating similar looking and similar size objects. Yet when it went into the space for people to use I found that people were creating all kinds of wonderful things including objects that wouldn't fit on screen. This reaction is important to me in a lot of the things I make; they're just starting points with a set of constraints and rules that people can play within to create surprising things.
