Complexity does not mean returning to the baroque, it means that the material can be transformed indifferent ways and many times without affecting its cost of production. This means, product designers can create in an a priori yet flexible and cost effective manner
The transformation of the material is the design decision
In what ways will the product design process, particularly in small local production change if the de-signer utilizes ambient data from the environment to inform the design decisions and formal aspects of the objects he/she designs?
How will they fabricate these objects? what new techniques are necessary in order toachieve cost effective design iteration and complexity?
using ambient sound as the data source for the design decision of all the pieces in order to create a conceptual framework for all of them.
The designer no longer needs to sketch detailsand defined shapes,he needs to be sensitive toalgorithmic exploration and variation.The designer needs to be open toprogrammable complexity.The designer no longer needs to imply but hecan work in an explicit yet flexible manner.The designer now has the ability to beinteractive and generative.
Next StepsCreate a wearable piece and change data from sound to biometric informationContinue the ring projectexplore concepts for a furniture piece
ConceptA practice based research in form and fabrication techniques for product designers, working in localproduction and exploring computational methods as the source of information and inspiration in thedesign process. thank you
