summary When digital technology finally assumes its far-reaching potential, it will cross the Design Threshold. it will assume its own innate and universal identity - not the misplaced identity often ascribed by computer programmers or the mimicry of traditional process dictated by status quo architects - but an identity and awareness that plays to the unique capabilities of digital design. Uniqueness occurs at the design threshold. It can be identified as the point where: (1) The digital process becomes integral to the conclusion, a design that would not have been reasonably anticipated otherwise. (2) The intention of the designer is substantially dependent on the interaction of digital process to accomplish the intended result. (3) The complexity of the task exceeds the ability of the designer to accomplish that task by any other reasonable available means. // This pedagogy is explored through graphic experiments that exhibit DNA like properties.
