JOINERY


JOINERY


A MORE GENERAL CONCEPT OF JOINERY - THAT OF 'MAKING BIG THINGS OUT OF SMALLER THINGS' - ADDRESSES NEW TERRITORY OF CRAFT AMONG ROBOTS DESIGNERS AND CRAFTSMEN/WOMEN

PART 2 EXPLORES THIS TERRITORY THROUGH A PRACTICE OF MOVING FLUIDLY BETWEEN CONCEPTS, OBJECTS, TOOLS AND TECHNIQUES

NEW TOOLS OFFER OPPORTUNITY FOR A CONTINUOUS DIALOGUE BETWEEN IDEAS AND MACHINES,  OFTEN MANIFESTING AS MORE OF A DANCE OR FIGHT RATHER THAN A COLD AUTOMATION.

A TENSION BETWEEN ANIMAL AND MECHANICAL DESIRES DEVELOPED IN THE PROTOTYPES  OF PART 1 WAS TRANSPOSED TO EXPLORE  HEIGHTENED RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN BODIES, MACHINES, AND PROTOTYPES.

THE PROTOTYPE IS COMPRISED OF PARTS JUST LARGER THAN ONE PERSON CAN HANDLE ALONE, LITERALY REQUIRING A DANCE/FIGHT.  BODIES BECOME INTANGLED WITH THE PARTS, EVOKING ELEGANT WAYS THAT ROBOTS MIGHT BECOME INTIMATE WITH EACH OTHER, REPLACING US IN THIS PROCESS OF ASSEMBLY
