We got invited to the international workshops of the College of Management Academic Studies, COMAS in Tel Aviv, Israel and the FabLabIL with a proposal for a workshop on “Soft Space”
Soft Space is a seminar that explores new relationships between our body and the surrounding environment. Even if our body is 90% of the times enveloped in soft materials, we cannot declare the same with space and its architecture. What if we imagine a fluid , soft, maleable , interactive surrounding as an extension of our body?
Digital Fabrication and CAD-CAMM technologies give us easy and direct access to tools and create a fertile ground for experimentation.
Through the exploration of soft materials and different fabrication techniques we can design new interactions and perspectives about objects, our body and space.
As far as the program overview, if the workshop is an intensive course of 1week / 40hours (8h/day)
1.1. Processes and techniques – digital manufacturing
1.2. New materials, intelligents, reagents, soft, technicians, biomaterials
1.3. Space as body- extention of technology and the new body
1.4. Digital fabrication techniques on materials
1.5. The imaginary space
2.1. Laboratory project proposals
2.2 Fabrication Laboratory models
2.3. Submission of proposals.
2.4 Manufacture of selection of proposals in scale 1: 1 (Cut Laser- impression 3D- CNC milling – elecronic)
