Innovation Design Engineering
Hand Made by Machines
In the world of fabrication, the use of machines for efficiency and cost savings has replaced the need for human input.
In the future, instead of distancing the maker from the final object with sophisticated machines, we need to develop means by which machine and man can coexist. I aim to find a fabrication technique where the user has an intimate relationship with a making machine, treating it as a personal tool rather than a form of reproduction.
