About
Karsten Schmidt, also known as Toxi, is the director of Post Spectacular, the London-based design studio. At the heart of his practice lies the use of code as a creative tool and open-source technologies. Schmidt believes in building his own tools, and his work stretches the possibilities of design through interdisciplinary practice and collaborative working. He was an early contributor to Processing.org, a website by Ben Fry and Casey Reas housing open-source programming language. His work is exhibited internationally including at MoMA, New York. Recent projects include Forever, a generative installation with designers Universal Everything (V&A, 2008) and a generative design identity for the onedotzero Adventures in Motion Festival 2009. As part of the Decode exhibition the V&A commissioned Schmidt to create an open-source marketing identity. View it here and get involved with the Recode project.

Karsten Schmidt also created Social Collider in the Network section of the exhibition
