Design Idiosyncrasies Presentation - VCUQ, Doha...


Tomorrow, Tuesday December 3, at 12.15 PM, I'll be doing a small lunch-time presentation in the VCUQ VIP Room titled Design Idiosyncrasies... The short abstract for the presentation is included below... 

Design Idiosyncrasies 
Making Process and Material Specific Designs

The presentation will show examples of design work that were catalyzed by various, both material and process derived, idiosyncrasies. These include explorations into digital fabrication methods such as Laser-cutting and 3D Printing, and will show examples of designs that would be difficult, if not impossible, to be realized by any other means. The presentation will also show how the use of various 'mundane' materials - such as Velcro, Toast, or Sadu thread - can be appropriated into new, and perhaps somewhat unexpected, design based uses and contexts...
