Digital lace: Procedurally created design

Ellen Schofield

Abstract


Digital Lace is a set of laser-cut paper panels that explores the intersection of intentional decisionmaking and computer-created randomness. The project uses a set of illustrated symbols, a computer program that randomly places the symbols and rearranges them based on a simple algorithm, and laser cut paper panels that are created from the computer-generated file. The final pieces exemplify the kind of modular design present in digital design while celebrating the materiality and tactile quality of traditional art.
