Inspiration-What is percieved randomness?

  We have a long history in appreciating the quality of randomness in artworks, especially Surrealism and Deconstructionism. Disregarding the art value of this work, I was inspired by how they use randomness as a tool to composite their work which involves in the loss of rationality.

In the modern word digital tools had been created to help people doing exactly what surrealist did but in one click. Poem generator, Melody generator, Website transformer, human creativity have been stimulated from all sorts of a digital chance making ways to create perceived random for different uses.

This year architectural generative possibility will be speculated base on a large amount of research.
