Generative Design by Ondina Frate

We love generative design for the myriad options it gives us when designing buildings and building systems, but it can also produce innovative and wonderful pieces of art. We were thrilled to discover Ondina Frate and her Twitter bot @GenerativDesign which is, "a Processing bot that takes the latest abstract pictures from Flickr using an API and re-designs them by shifting groups of pixels randomly to the left and right."

Ondina has generously agreed to allow us to use some of her images for our weekly newsletters. It's such fun to scroll through the images her bot creates!

You can see this and other examples of Ondina's work @generativdesign and @ondinafrate, and on her website ondinafrate.com. If you would like to reach out to her directly, contact her at oef208@nyu.edu.
