The Beauty of Lacks and Limitation

October 29th, 2010

At the end of April of this year, Manuel Bürger held a one week workshop “The Beauty of Lacks and Limitation” at the New Media department of the Merz Akademie in Stuttgart, Germany. The course was about: Design Awareness / Composing in Boundaries / Template Distending /  Breaking inflexible Patterns in Design / Carrying Ideas into Effect. He asked the students to learn to know their software and then to try to bring the software to its knees. The second step was to carry their ideas into effect.
You should definitely check out the website of the workshop. There’re a lot of great examples, research and inspiration, but also the results made by the students. These are my 2 favorites.

Julian Beekmann used the calc-function of Apple Pages to draw mountains with beautiful stone fillings.

Ulricke Schock made these animated GIF’s with TextEdit.
