The Art of the Maker: Craft, Design and Technology in the 21st Century
Presented by Carinna Parraman (Professor of Design, Colour and Print, Director of the Centre for Fine Print Research, UWE). Part of The Art of the Maker Series.
Invention, innovation and insight are keywords for any technologist, designer and maker. In the twenty‐first century, a wealth of new and emerging materials, alongside digital methods for the manufacture of products and services are transforming and enhancing our lives. But there are also the age-old techniques and crafts traditions that demonstrate fundamental benchmarks in material culture that are the foundation for high-quality printing and fabrication today and in the future. Exploring the future of printing and fabrication, new ways of thinking and working, alongside traditional methods of making, Carinna will be exploring the shifting field of Homo Faber and the human condition, and how digital technologies are transforming craft and design.
