About Matt Davis; Design & Craft for Interiors & Architecture
As the vessel can be seen as a pivotal marker in the development of civilisation, this work aims to mark society in the Information Age.
Pastiche archetypal forms are created by combining computers with traditional techniques and result in parody by using high technology to make ‘lo-tech’ artefacts.
The immortalisation of intangible code via transmutation of organic matter is central to the work’s theme of dualism and paradoxically presents virtual forms in physical reality.
While augmenting dialogues concerning the handmade versus machine the intention is to confront perceptions of digital tooling in relation to Craft.
