Observing Design

The Illusion of Certainty

Last fall, at a small gallery on West 22nd Street in New York, the artist Allan McCollum exhibited his new system for producing unique two-dimensional shapes. Developed using vector files on his home computer, McCollum organized a “system” to produce over 31,000,000,000 different shapes and has, to date, set aside 214,000,000 for creative experimentation.
But that’s not all. McCollum aspires to an unprecedented scale with this system: his goal is to make enough shapes, assuming a population of approximately 9.1 billion by the year 2050, so that everyone on the planet can have one.
