John Maeda's work as an educator and director of the Aesthetics + Computation Group (ACG) at the MIT Media Lab has largely remained behind the scenes. For seven years, Maeda and his students - several of whom are already internationally celebrated - have created some of the most digitally sophisticated and exciting pieces of design to emerge anywhere. Little of this research has been seen outside the laboratory.

This book presents the most fascinating work produced by the group, arranged into themes that apply to today's design issues: information visualisation, digital typography, abstraction, interaction design, and education. Each section also features brief essays by leading names in the field of interaction and digital design, including Casey Reas, David Small, Yugo Nakamura, Joshua Davis, and Gillian Crampton-Smith. A rich compilation of inventive work in the field between art and science.
