Designing the Future: Computer Transformation of Reality

This book shows the full creative potential of the computer. Packed both with practical applications and new concepts, it demonstrates that computers do not simply perform old tasks more efficiently, but enable us to generate whole new worlds. Robin Baker shows how the computer is potentially the firmest bridge ever built between the two cultures of art and science: once simply a tool for handling abstract symbols, it has engendered - with the advent of VDU technology - the electronic image, and with it a new form of expression. Initially, paint systems and 2-D and 3-D drafting programmes simply transferred traditional methods onto the screen; now our entire visual landscape - from architecture and interior design to film and graphics, from fashion and jewellery to printmaking and industrial design - is being transformed.
