In L’Artisan Électronique, pottery, one of the oldest artisanal techniques for making utilitarian objects, is combined with new digital media. However, the installation still clearly refers to the artisanal process of working in clay.

Unfold’s ceramic 3d printer has a great resonance with the way traditional potters handled clay by building a form out of coils of clay. The virtual pottery wheel on the other hand, is a digital tool to ‘turn’ forms in thin air.

 

 

L’Artisan Electronique is an installation commissioned by Z33 for the exhibition Design by Performance and developed in collaboration with Tim Knapen and the RepRap community.

 

L'Artisan Electronique was in exhibitions in Abu Dhabi (Abu Dhabi Art Fair), Jerusalem (Israel Museum), Rotterdam (CBK), Enkhuizen (Zuiderzeemuseum), Brussels (Design Flanders Gallery), London (Aram Gallery), ...
