Design-Tech Guest Lecture: Noam Dover

20.3.2019, 13:30, PeKA Architecture Gallery, Amado building, The Faculty of Architecture and Town Planning, Technion.

A lecture about the potential of mould-blown glass to tell the story of its own making process, and to reflect on its origins in both the DNA of craft and technological contexts. The practice is introduced to open digital fabrication technology while maintaining a link to craft history, recognising profound skills, innovations and knowledges, and how these knowledges accumulated into ordered techniques and material culture. The term ‘bridging’ suggests the connection between the history of vessel making and contemporary craft participation which embraces digital possibilities; mould making is the keystone in that bridging.
