The work explores the relationship between hand and digital tools, investigating experimental manufacturing technology and materials. I am particularly interested in how the tacit knowledge and sensibility to the 3 dimensional object developed through extended practice can affect and influence the approach to the creation of objects using digital technology.
As a member of a unique generation that has bridged the digital divide, I firmly believe that particular perspective has enabled us to contrast and compare life before and after the invention of the personal computer. For me it is not a matter of comparisons, I feel very lucky that life at the beginning of the 21st century has furnished me with a wider choice of tools in my toolbox. All have their place, the new does not replace the old; the key is to make appropriate use of them.
