la combinatoire en graphisme
is centered around the union of systems and their use as well as on their practical application methods – combination rules and module combinations. It also belongs to the mathematical field – scheduling, powers, probabilities.
The combinatorial can be a form of creativity and inventiveness,
that we find in the construction set
including to generate and produce images
in graphic design. Evolving,
graphics systems to repair memorization or weariness can be designed. It can be the centre of
devices. Besides, there is a question of innovation.
Finally, the combinatorial can be
form of limitation,
a in order to
organize to understand a complexity
or avoid chaos. It is the case with language and its
syntactical and linguistic
rules just as with our Latin alphabet. Or else, there is the case of some
just like Brockmann’s grid composition,
determined by rigorous rules and a functionalist
approach. This grid systematizes, standardizes.
But it may on the contrary, be submitted to too restrictive constraints
instructions, game rules,
– which can contain and limit variation
or anything unexpected
in the production process.
To conclude, we can wonder about
why the combinatorial systems are currently so present in graphic design.
