MS 056 pz -Digital Fabrication for Media Studies

Institution: Pitzer

Description: A production course on making physical objects for screen-work,photography, sculpture, and other practices using digital fabrication. The specific tools are object modeling software,primarily Blender, and the machines commonly referred to as 3D printers. Using such tools in the making of multiples, structures for kinetic objects, procedurally-generated morphology, and objects that mirror the form of contemporary mass-produced visual culture is explored, as are techniques for modeling different categories of shape and function. That the hand, mind, and eye of the practitioner remain their primary tools, even in this environment of machinic ubiquity, is a primary revelation of the class.
