Option Explicit: Scripting Design Experiments relates form-generating processes through a series of written codes to virtual models and physical objects. In the setting of the 272 graphic seminar, parametric design and digital fabrication mutually reinforce each other; the first opening up a field of potentials, the second narrowing down possible solutions by real world constraints. By means numeric evaluation, vector computation and computer controlled fabrication students become editors of parameters, control complex geometries and, ultimately, work towards a non-standard understanding of design.
