Introduction to Computational Media


In keeping with the theme of artistic individualism vs creative collectivism within the creative soul, “The Fountainhead” was chosen to be alphabetized and reprinted. By incorporating digital means (algorithmic computation and digital layout) to create an artistic artifact in an era when the collection and curation of purely digital media is still in debate, and to reflect upon one of the manipulated mediums mentioned within the book, namely that of ink on paper. The reason for such a choice thematically is personal in nature as the ideal artistic vision played out in its truest sense is often controversial, just like “The Fountainhead”, and that while outside opinions and interpretations often abound, it is the duty of any artist with a strong conviction and unique personal vision to hold true to it and persevere.
