Rune Madsen is a Danish designer, programmer and artist who builds web applications, interactive installations, algorithmic graphic design systems, and many other things involving artistic uses of computation.
Rune’s work is rooted in simplicity, organized complexity, and the concept that the pragmatic and poetic is inseparable. Rune runs his own design agency out of Denmark, develops interactive features for the New York Times and teaches graduate classes at New York University.
His work has been exhibited in galleries throughout the U.S and beyond, in popular magazines, and on national television. Rune is currently finishing "Programming Design Systems", a new book focused on the new foundations of algorithmic graphic design.
