What potential can we find in merging modern production methods, with traditional Japanese wood joinery? In the context of a student workshop at gallery designtransfer between the 15 – 30.11.18, students of the the architecture course Digital and Experimental Design will develop an atmospheric installation piece. The work will consist of CNC machined wooden elements; the idea being to consider a relationship between craft, and digital practice. The results will be shown at designtransfer at the opening 30 November 18:00, beginning with an open panel discussion, in cooperation with the German-Japanese Center Berlin.
Also on display are “eGambiarra”, a project by Takuya Koyama, Kohei Kimura and Mizuki Tanaka, the installation “Joyn Machine” by Studio Milz and the plug-in system “Wood Aggregate” by Dominik Bartkowski and Natalia Stepanova.
