Uncreative Design

Reading Response Questions for Week 6

1. By using chance operations to construct a piece of art, does the work then relate more to people’s experiences of the world in which random events and accidents are commonplace?

2. Is there a tension between chance operations and formal technique? Does the way in which a chance operation gets carried out affect its integrity?

3. Is it our desire to see the outcome of actions that makes chance-based work so engaging? Are these desires merely curiosities or do we expect to gain something from seeing the result?
