Le Vase Fragmenté




This vase was not formed on a wheel but inside a computer using 3D modelling software. It was destroyed inside the machine using an algorithm becoming fragments, not a singular object. The fragments were then 3D printed in ceramic. The object investigates the boundary between physical and digital making processes and was intended as a metaphor to describe the impact of digital technologies (bullet) on the UK manufacturing industry (vase).
