New complexity is a design philosophy that is essentially the opposite of minimalism. It is driven by technologies that allow for extreme complexities beyond what was historically possible. New complexity is associated with significant detail in design. As an example, electronic music can be created that has thousands or perhaps millions of layers. As a design philosophy, new complexity rejects the notion that simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. It is based on the idea that extreme complexity has potential to create extreme value. New complexity is commonly applied to aesthetics, interfaces, logic and functionality.
