Autonomous Machines

The current popularity of generative design processes – in which designers use algorithms to create a variety of differ¬ent outcomes, instead of focussing on one, definitive result – is closely linked to the use of digital design tools. This devel-opment has changed our perception of design as the creation of the single author. What could happen when the approach fostered by digital generative designers would be applied to an analogue world? A world in which obsolete machines like hand-powered alarm clocks, a walkman and mechanical toys take centre stage? My experiments in this domain of obsolete machines reveal their ‘internal’ algorithms. Instead of creating these algorithms, I simply adopt and then visualize them.
