Seminar 3: the ideal of the tectonic: The variable and the mould

Date: Autumn semester 2010: August

The seminar queries ideas of mono-material and the composite in digital fabrication. Digital fabrication can be understood as a set of techniques that each focus on a particular set of crafts, materials and processes. Many of the examples of working experimentally with digital fabrication maintain this sense of mono-material realisation. The seminar asks how these techniques can be interfaced? What happens as complexity increases and these techniques become inter-related?
