robertogreco : dynamic   12 [Normaltype]
"N O R M A L T Y P E is designed to be a display font with no fixed shape. Version 1 came out as a piece of parametric typography, but we thought it was important to introduce motion in our application as soon possible. Hence why now, it comes with the same parameters as in the previous version, but also a ‘step sequencer’ so you can create animation loops to then export as animated GIFs! On top of that, we added a few new parameters such as ‘connections’ between characters, more punctuation and also a small window for text editing."

"yes we do love the great ideas of the 60s 70s & the optimism which is inherent in changing the world at the stroke of a pen to the better. but we strongly believe that complexity is real & good & our society today does need a more substantial approach. therefore our spacial proposals are small scale & deeply rooted in the local condition…. BYE BYE UTOPIA!"

"There was once a society that believed the future would bring better living conditions to everyone. There were people, utopian thinkers, who thought about the big questions of the city. Today only a feeling remains, half desire, half melancholy, reminiscing of those architects who wanted to live in a better society and who had dreamed of better places. Such an era is now over. Here begins my work.

raumlaborberlin is a network, a collective of 8 trained architects who have come together in a collaborative work-structure. We work at the intersection of architecture, city planning, art and urban intervention…"

Stephen Bayley on design innovations with flexible shapes | Art and design | The Observer
"Of course, "dynamic architecture" may also be a larger metaphor for the economic, moral and political uncertainties of our era. Poetic, really, to think that every wall may become a door. And it may be happening in design too. Late last year, BMW revealed Gina (a slightly forced acronym of Geometry, Infinity and Adaptation). This is a car whose shape can change. As soon as designer Chris Bangle realised that structural and safety priorities did not depend on external metalwork, he asked himself: "What do we need the skin of a car for?" So Gina's membrane covering can morph and adapt for different weathers and different aesthetics.

fabric of folly: Virtual moonbeams: the impossible task of capturing the web
"So, how do you solve a problem like archiving the web? The two most likely solutions to my mind are 1.) a massive, open, SETI@home-style distributed networking approach 2.) Google does it."

"We designed a dynamic graphic identity system that embodies the concepts of change and innovation, together with a deep underlying coherence. The result is an always changing logotype designed by a random/generative process."
