Interactive flower generator showcased at the Designers Night 12 exhibition

Generative Design & Programming

Designers Night 12 Exhibition

For this event my student colleague Kati-Ann and I set ourselves the challenge to create an enjoyable interactive installation for the visitors. We wanted to use generative design approaches and ended up building a program that could generate endless amounts of flowers. Visitors could influence the output by typing a personal message and print out the result on a postcard.

Making flowers for people to enjoy

The project was a huge success! Over a hundred people visited our installation, generated hundreds of flowers and printed out around 100 postcards. It was great to see excited visitors try out the different inputs and print out their very own postcard.

The project was showcased once more at a second Exhibition called "Werkschau" where it was received very well again.
