I never was sure about the potential of computational designing and the aesthetic of it. Why should we - as designers - leave the fun part of artistic expression to computers? Why not draw, sculpture, model or sketch for your self? “Coding art”, I realised, means something different. It is maybe the attempt to abstract a design problem - “telling” the computer to produce “art” and reveal in that way the logic of aesthetics. Of course, quite profane, it is fun to watch the computer producing stuff.
