    The day consisted of a short presentation of the work and manifesto of Conditional Design, and four drawing sessions: two Conditional Drawing sessions in the morning, two Custom Rules sessions in the afternoon.

    A extensive overview of all of the elements of the workshop can be found on the Conditional Design website. And many more photos can be found on BALTAN’s flickr set. Photos by Boudewijn Bollmann.
