Hack Chair

An investigation into 6axis robotics alongside traditional craft techniques

Research output: Non-textual outputArtefactResearch

Abstract

Using CNC carving technologies alongside traditional hand techniques the hack chair aims to ask if robotic craft techniques can be excepted as a craft, where do the boundaries lie between crafting by hand and expectancy of digital manufacturing as a craft, can an object help bridge the gap between the perceptions of hand and machine fabrication,
The Chair was supported by a written text presented at the making futures symposium in Plymouth as well as symposiums in both Austria and Irland, an abbreviated version of the text has also been published in crafts magazine and a film of the making has been made to help diseminate the research and demonstrate the close relationships between hand making and cnc prosesses. The chair throughout 2019 will be exhibited around the world.
