The Victoria & Albert Museum has commissioned the artist Karsten Schmidt aka Toxi to design a truly malleable, digital identity for the Decode exhibition by providing it as open source code. Karsten has just posted additional information including downloadable application built in Proceessing. A number of the recoded works submitted by you will be chosen by the V&A and CBS to appear on London Underground digital screens to promote the exhibition. Each work used in this way will appear fully credited with the name of its artist. The actual piece/app is truly wonderful and quite mesmerising but we wouldn’t expect no less from Karsten who continues to amaze time after time.
The identity application is fully interactive and can be controlled via mouse, keyboard and a graphical user interface. The application lets you manipulate most parameters in realtime to create a variety of different looks and we encourage you to take the time to experiment to create your own version. You do not need to be an expert coder, as Karsten has included a detailed user guide for changing each of the parameters via the user interface and provided some pointers to make changes to the code itself. Follow the steps below to take part, and then send your recoded work to us for inclusion in our digital gallery.
