The love of making things need not be confined to the physical world - electronic form giving is an equal hands-on experience. My talk is investigation of the possibility of craft in the digital realm. There is a growing correspondence between digital work and traditional craft. Anyone who gives form with software, whether in web design, architecture, motion graphics or modeling, is practicing personal knowledge and producing visual artifacts that, although not material, are nevertheless products of the hands, eyes and mind.
The talk stars with an introduction to my current role at The Group, thoughts on the Bauhaus movement (and their understanding of craft & technology) and concludes with interviews by various digital crafts people.
Design Designen was created for the 6. Typotage in Munich which took place on 21. July 2009.
Note that the talk contains slides in German and English.
