As designers, we are less interested in using computation and simulation to produce high-fidelity representations of real-world conditions. We are focused on exploring the co-production of digital-physical hybrids, that is, mixed realities with real-time networked feedback loops. These hybrids have a physical artifact: an output that could be a structure, an installation, a framework; and a virtual database of inputs that inform the artifact…
