Every year the Design Academy Eindhoven presents a catalogue with all the graduation projects during the Graduation Show. The 2020 catalogue is structured by an algorithm that generates an infinite amount of hypothetical news headlines based on a dataset consisting of all the project texts. These generated headlines such as ‘2020 Dictator Fights Exclusion’ and ‘Drone Signals Disrupt the Self’ serve as a structure for the book, while they also reveal the overarching themes and interests of the graduates’ work. They describe a future world according to the next generation of designers.
