generative characters

Generative characters in a Generative Design process
Celestino Soddu and Enrica Colabella

Abstract for XVI Generative Art conference and exhibition at Triennale di Milano, 9,10,11 and 12 december 2013:

Following the methodology fixed in our quoted books it is shown the experience of the generative design approach with the students from all the world at the Master School of Design of Politecnico di Milano University. The starting point for each student is to engage a process by using the trilogy Memory/Thinking/Imagination for performing the main aim of the generative process as a character.
This trilogy works following an helical direction in double verse. The generative character is discovered by fixing 3 words as attributes, also in contrast between them in significance. In this way the character performs an instability of the system delineating a first not linearity. Students choose attributes from an imaginary world of singular reference
It is activated in the generative process a dualism, as Goethe fixed in Polaritat 1805, that gains students in working in a transformation process of elements. These are connected imaginatively with attributes. The next step is the core of the process.
Using a catalyst (images, sounds, poems etc.) each student interprets it by a process of abduction (Pierce) able to catch the impression fixing it in a first sketch as an embryo of a performing idea/code. In this first hypothesis are fixed the aim attributes. So students have just delineated a paradigm/code able to perform a control act in the generative results. As in nature code works.
So is a deductive moment. It refers to the incipit of Beowulf by Seamus Heaney ; that is the translation of the epic English romance after thousands of years. This for the simple reason that we can use the word generative in a correct way only if we are connected to the past time, as the great poet Heaney gave us a so incredible example. Putting the fixed characters in the first idea structured as an embryo of paradigm is like to translate the past (catalyst) into a new configuration performed as generative chains. These are expressed by choosing from singular cultural references a motto, as expression of a popular voice in mother tongue.
The first part of the works of students( they stay in the middle of course) is shown in GA exhibition in vertical format A4 as fragments connected each to the others in evocation of the old film material in our digital time.
