Post Digital Design Tools
Workshop

TOOLS SERIES #3: AFTER THE BIT RUSH POST DIGITAL DESIGN TOOLS, a workshop organized by Baltan Laboratories and hosted at MU Eindhoven in the framework of After the Bit Rush, design in a post-digits age. Unfold gave the workshop together with Lucas Maassen, co-curater on the show.

The assignment: Digital tools are often based their analog counterparts. But in their digital context they are used to perform very different tasks. Many times they evolve into new independent digital design tools. Is it possible to do the same thing in the reverse? Can we create analog tools based on their digital counterparts? During the workshop, participants explored these possible transformations with designers Maassen and Unfold. In the evening, the results of the day-long workshop were presented during a public showing.
