Art/Design: Echo Yang’s “Autonomous Machines”- TinToy (Chicken)

Graphic designer Echo Yang explores the current popularity of generative design processes, where computer software iterates endless variations, by turning old school analog devices like tin windup toys, a Walkman, an alarm clock and other machines into instruments of self-generated output.

With her project Echo Yang reveals the internal algorithms of obsolete machines. Though instead of creating these algorithms, she simply adopts and then visualizes them by for example attaching a swab with paint to a bobbing tin chicken wind-up toy and recording the dabs.
