A generative approach to concept development for electronic products.
The emotional and irrational aspects of being human often contrast and even conflict with the values inherent in digital and electronic products. Generator is a software tool for exploring possibilities for such products, in each case combining a randomly-selected social context or technology with an emotional aspect and a function.
Using text encourages us to fill in the gaps conceptually. On encountering a juxtaposition of parameters the mind naturally tries to make them into a coherent whole, even when this means resolving contradictions or absurdities. This version of the software is capable of producing 139,590 different combinations.
