One of the first constraint-oriented simulation programs.
„Schema.org is a collaborative, community activity with a mission to create, maintain, and promote schemas for structured data on the Internet, on web pages, in email messages, and beyond.“
„If completed, it would contain every possible combination of 1,312,000 characters, including lower case letters, space, comma, and period. Thus, it would contain every book that ever has been written, and every book that ever could be – including every play, every song, every scientific paper, every legal decision, every constitution, every piece of scripture, and so on. At present it contains all possible pages of 3200 characters, about 104677 books.“
Also, the principle applied to image data:
Web framework to link contents from different online services together.
„The objective of allRGB is simple: To create images with one pixel for every RGB color (16777216); not one color missing, and not one color twice.“
Wireless sensor stickers for context aware applications. Considering the fundamental messiness of infrastructures and the procedural simplicity of the functional programming I imagine some interesting side effects if these things move around unintentionally, become trash and create a messy hyper-context, where you loose sight of what reacts to what. Maybe a question of context-aware ubiquitous applications in general.
…is comprised of over 2,000 voice recordings collected via Amazon’s Mechanical Turk web service.
Questions digital tools in the design process, relationship human and machine, freedom and limitations. She designes systems with defined limits and rules to create space for unexpected things (Conditional Design Collective).
Other topics: creation of own digital tools, co-design with algorithms, man-machine-friction/-adaption, productive glitch and space for imperfection in digital technologies.

A trading algorithm based on superstition (moon phases, numerology). An objectively subjective apparatus.
„…explores the possibility of a modular construction model where everyone designs for everyone on the basis of one shared geometrical grid.“
The need of a rigidly defined, universal, modular order for enabling collaborative and open source development.
Research project about the possible role of networked images in the sciences. A system to assamble, categorise, annotate and link images wants to explore new forms of working with images in other scientific contexts than in art history. Some examples on the website.
„A matrix of nearly 80 adapter bricks that enable complete interoperability between ten popular children’s construction toys. By allowing any piece to join to any other, the Kit encourages totally new forms of intercourse between otherwise closed systems—enabling radically hybrid constructive play, the creation of previously impossible designs.“
Systematization of the design of national flags generates a multiplicity of speculative national identities.
A visual system to encode narrative parameters of novels as cover designs.
