Design’s Kyuha Shim on Vocabularies of Computation


Kyuha Shim, an Assitant Professor at Carnegie Mellon University's School of Design, was just interviewed by Walker Art's design magazine The Gradient in a piece titled "Vocabularies of Computation: An Interview with Kyuha (Q) Shim." The interview with Jas Stefanski looks at the role AI can play in graphic design.

From The Gradient:

Computation is, first and foremost, my primary medium. It is a lens with which and through which I take an analytical perspective to see things as generative pattern, a combination of parameters and algorithms. Not everything is made out of rules, but I love to decode logic encrypted in artifacts. At the same time, computation is a material with which I build systems that can automatically repeat tasks, which yields continuity and actually feels like real-time. It enables me to play with contingent, complex, data-driven, and improvisational aspects of formation.
