Abstract / Summary:

This web-based exhibition was curated by the Crafts Council as the launch project for the organisation’s ‘On-View’ feature platform where it remains permanently featured., This exhibition comprehensively documents a research-through-practice investigation which has established several entirely new ‘work-flow’ processes for designing with digitally-recorded three-dimensional drawings used as the input for creating physical artefacts. The concept employs a digitising arm to record spatial sketches developed into artefacts by combinations of digital fabrication technologies and hand skills., The research extends the knowledge of the practical and artistic application of post-WIMP (windows, icons, menus, pointer) interface systems within design practices, particularly in the applied arts sector. It also explores ways in which gestural expression can be captured digitally and translated into physical artefacts by new tools of digital fabrication., The new design processes developed during this investigation have been tested extensively through the creation of a series of glass and ceramic bowls. The research was structured with a clear aim and a set of objectives, however other elements of the research were also guided by discoveries during creative explorations organised as cycles of reflective practice. The whole investigation has been rigorously documented and widely disseminated., A portfolio of evidence includes a conference paper delivered at Physicality 2009 (HCI 2009, Churchill College Cambridge) and conference presentations: ‘Icograda’ (World Design Congress, Beijing), the Estonian Triennial of Applied Arts and ‘The Big Smoke’ (Auckland, New Zealand)., Pieces created during this investigation have been exhibited at numerous national and international venues: The Wills Lane Gallery (St. Ives), Galerie Handwerk (Munich, Germany), ‘Know How’ (Tallinn, Estonian), ‘DRAW,’ (Royal College of Art, London) and ‘Lab Craft,’ (London Design Festival, then touring 9 UK venues with 50k+ cumulative visitors).
