Generative Design is a morphogenetic process using algorithms structured as not-linear systems for endless unique and un-repeatable results performed by an idea-code, as in Nature. (C.Soddu 1992)


Futuring Past

Futuring Past works by logically interpreting the structures of harmonic transformations identifiable in the past masterpieces, and by transcribing them in generative algorithms

FP paper - Futuring Past movie

Poetic Logic

Poetic Logic works by logically interpreting references, starting from Art-Science experiences in Italian Renaissance, and using this for running the Generative process.

- PL paper

Generative Art Conference

Generative Art is the idea realized as generative code of artificial events, as construction of dynamic complex not-linear systems able to generate endless variations following a vision.

About us

Starting from Italian Renaissance, and the possibility to link Art and Science, we work on generative approach to Art, Architecture, Design, Poetry and Music.

Our approach is performed by our Poetic Logic able to interpret our past and what surround us for shaping the Future.

Futuring Past Portfolio

Generative Projects since 1988 focusing the Characters and Identity of Past Masterpieces. For each project Generative original algorithms were designed by Celestino Soddu and used for generating variations of possible 3D scenarios. results are recognizable as belonging to the Past Identities and to the author Interpretation, as normally happens when an artist refers to past masterpreces. Enrica Colabella participated to these long creative experience with her suggestions and critics and developping together the Generative Philosophy.
