Karsten Schmidt has created a truly malleable, digital identity for the Decode exhibition led The Victoria and Albert Museum.
DecodeIdent is a free and open-source application that allows you to recode Karsten Schmidt's work and create your own original artwork.
DecodeIdent is a fully interactive application and can be controlled via mouse, keyboard and a graphical user interface.
DecodeIdent enables you to manipulate most parameters in realtime to create a variety of different looks and you are encouraged to take the time to experiment to create your own version.
You don't need to have expert decoding skills because Karsten has included a detailed user guide for changing each of the parameters via the user interface and provided some pointers to make changes to the code itself.
Detailed instructions on how use the DecodeIdent utility on your Mac are available HERE.
DecodeIdent is cross-platform and it works on Mac OS X and Windows. Binaries for the Windows platform are available on the project's homepage.
