If design is about solving communications problems, then design is not art. In most cases, art abstracts communication. However, an education weighed heavily by postmodern art swayed me to believe that art doesn’t need to be framed and hung in a gallery. I happen to hang design on my wall. And I would be more than enthused to own a piece of Infographiti, a series created by Dutch designers Eva Dijkstra and Michael Lugmayr.
From the project’s website, “Infographiti is a body of work by Eva Dijkstra and Michael Lugmayr, an exploration into the aesthetic potential of the graph as a work of abstract generative art. The result is a series of data generated artworks and installations in which the boundaries between art, research and graphic design are progressively blurred and challenged.”
