‘The media are not toys… they can be entrusted only to new artists, because they are art forms.’
(McLuhan, 1954)

Future Craft

with Patricia Mato-Mora & Dylan Wozniak-O’Connor

CMS2 Second Year

Future Craft explores the intersection of numeric and manual fabrication. Departing from David Pye’s understanding of mechanized and manual fabrication as part of a continuum, mediated by tools, technique and material – this course explores the space between ‘workmanship of risk’ and ‘workmanship of certainty’ – material expression and algorithmic control. In this course, students will design and manufacture a ceramic dual-purpose building component through a hybrid approach of numeric robot control and manual fabrication.
