Product Description

In this book, Carsten Nicolai explores the moiré effect—a phenomenon that can be created by the overlay of lines. Although such interference patterns are mostly considered to be unwanted side effects, they are actually extremely interesting from an aesthetic perspective. This first extensive visual compendium of these patterns is accompanied by a CD that contains not only the featured moirés as digital files, but also individual elements that can be used to create an almost endless amount of new overlays. By analyzing and systematically unlocking these fundamental structures of crucial importance to the visualization of data, Nicolai has again produced not only a work of art, but also a practical tool for anyone working creatively.
