ABOUTSince 2010, Christoph Bader and Dominik Kolb have been working together under the lable "deskriptiv" that stands for generative design at the intersection of art, science and technology. Since 2014, we have been focusing on additive manufacturing research that is expressed through generative-art projects.
Processes that produce shapes are a central theme of our work. To us, this is a switch from a product oriented thinking to a process oriented way of working. This is often called procedural- or generative-art. As generative artists we are no longer just concerned about one particular outcome or the final artifact, rather we are focusing on the process that generates the final results. Designing such processes is a key part of our work.
We have been conducting our research in the Mediated Matter Group at the MIT Media Lab, where we graduated with a M.Sc. in 2017. Christoph is pursuing his Ph.D. at the MIT in Boston. Dominik is living and working in the south of Germany.
