the topic of the course was "zufall" (random/coincidence)
i started with the creation of 50 different graphics, based of different randomparameters (size, three colors, font, picture, content, date, duration). these 50 graphics were uploaded to flickr, while using a bug, and finaly put together to the most colorfull scifi novel of all time.
