XENOTYPESCurated by Juan Azulay, Carlo Aiello, Benjamin Rice Organized by eVolo + Makeform Media + Design Matters Gallery
Xenotypes are the prototypical manifestations of specific design processes, where the end is a 'design outside of design' or an alien. Embracing the unexpected while chasing the different is not necessarily to be understood as a failure, 'trial and error', or variation ~ but rather an unforeseen expression of a genetic driver, built into the possible outcome from the get-go ~ yet outside the realm of the known. These mutants, bastards or xenotypes enter through the back door of imaginative practices; and often tap into an aesthetic of fear.
