Course Brief :

Digital fabrication involves the translation of digital environments into material systems. Working as a small self-contained factory, we generate, define and translate data formations into multi-dimensional visual objects.

This studio sets out to explore the potential design novelties at the intersection of Geometry, Material behavior and Machinic processes utilizing a rapid prototyping method of subtractive fabrication [CNC milling].
Through the understanding of geometric articulation as the negotiation parameter between the machine and the material, we are able to consciously fluctuate between zones of machinic control: where the material inherits the geometrical input, and zones of material control: where the geometry inherits the behavioral patterns of the material.

Through an excavation process, we unfold a multilayered materiality, and refine our ability to design with and within the information level.
A new kind of materiality emerges, one that experiments with systemic procedures and speculates on the possibilities of production modes as a driver for both performative and sensual qualities of contemporary digital craft.
