Karsten Schmidt (aka toxi) is a London based computational designer
merging code, design, art & craft skills. Originally from East Germany
and starting in the deep end of the early 8-bit demo scene, for the
past 2 decades he's been adopting a trans-disciplinary way of working
and been laterally involved in a wide range of digital disciplines.
With his studio PostSpectacular, he is actively exploring current
possibilities at the intersection of design, art, software development
and education and applying these in a variety of fields. A strong
conceptual thinker and always striving for maximum creative freedom,
Karsten’s design approach is based on treating ideas as software at
the heart, which in turn informs all other facets of each project.
When not creating, he travels the world consulting and teaching
workshops about the generative design approach, open source and
employing code as creative tool. He's been an early contributor to the
Processing.org project and to various books about programming and
graphic design, and his work has been featured in the press and
exhibited internationally, including the MoMA, New York and Victoria
and Albert Museum, London.
