A dictionary to illuminate data-driven generative design and creative coding.


A Future Narrative is a narrative form characterized by features such as openness, indeterminacy, virtuality, and the inclusion of a variety of possible continuations of individual events. It creates a space of possibilities in which events – influenced, for example, by characters’ decisions, actions, values, or motives – can branch out in different directions at specific junctures.
