Poster design for Maeda lecture

2008 | Golan Levin

Poster design for Maeda lecture

John Maeda's current and former students (from his ACG and PLW graduate research groups at the MIT Media Laboratory) were invited to create posters for his farewell lecture at MIT, which took place on May 16, 2008. Using a diffusion-limited aggregation simulation technique borrowed from my Dendron project (2000), my poster image took about 68 minutes to "grow".


In an initiative organized by Amber Frid-Jimenez, former and current students of John Maeda designed posters for his farewell lecture. Participants included: James Seo, Justin Manor, Kate Hollenbach, Reed Kram, David Small, Myoung Lah, Matthew Grenby, Kelly Norton, Takashi Okamoto, Kyle Buza, Luis Blackaller, Laura Martini, James Dai, Casey Reas, Amber Frid-Jimenez, Burak Arikan, Golan Levin, Elise Co, and Nikita Pashenkov. The complete set of posters can be seen linked from here:
