Talk: "Design Hybrids- Creating Digital Tools for Craftsmanship" by Rony Ginosar
News from Nov 01, 2018
December 7th, 10AM - 12PM c.t., Rony Ginosar will give the talk "Design Hybrids- Creating Digital Tools for Craftsmanship" at the HCC.lab.
Rony Ginosar is a M.Sc. student in The school of Computer Science at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem as well as a B.Des student of Visual Communications at The Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design. As part of the Design Hybrids Lab she focuses on the research of digital design, craft and fabrication, and human-computer interaction (HCI)
The talk will be given in room 120, Königin-Luise-Straße 24-26.
At the Design Hybrids Lab we study the design and implementation of hybrid solutions, merging contemporary (and digital) design and fabrication capabilities within traditional making disciplines. We learn the ethnographic aspect of making and creativity, investigating how traditional symbolic practice can contribute to new design and fabrication research to empower today’s creative practices.
Engaging in studies and research on the verge of both disciplines, we ask a question of making parametric design procedures more accessible to traditional designers and crafts people - we envision the use of catalogues in parametric design, replacing abstract design procedures with a given set of visual options to select from and react to.
The lecture is part of a cooperation by the University Alliance for Sustainability.
