Decoding digital

The Decode: Digital Design Sensations exhibition at the Design Museum Holon looks at digital influences on visual art.

The Design Museum Holon in Israel, in partnership with V&A and onedotzero, presents Decode: Digital Design Sensations.

The exhibition, which runs until 10 March 2012, showcases specially commissioned works by Israeli artists and designers depicting the developments in digital and interactive design from small, screen-based graphics to large installations.

Decode: Digital Design Sensations explores three themes in digital and interactive design, namely "code", "interactivity" and "network".

The "code" section of the exhibition looks at how computer code can be used to create new designs in much the same way a sculptor would use wood or clay. It also looks at how code can be programmed to create constantly fluid and ever-changing objects.

As an exhibition theme “interactivity” looks at designs that are directly influenced by viewers. Here visitors are encouraged to interact with and contribute to the development of various artworks.

Under the “network” theme, the works comment on and utilise the digital traces left by everyday forms of communication, such as blogs, mobile technologies and GPS systems. “Network" also looks at how advanced technologies and the internet have enabled new kinds of social interaction.
