In view of the environmental situation, it is becoming urgent to re-examine the technical chains that lead to over-consumption of goods and the creation of waste in order to envisage new perspectives. For some time now, crafts and industry have been at odds with each other, particularly on questions of production time and therefore cost, although they have intrinsically different logics. However, the exponential evolution of digital tools and their diffusion in the world of craftsmanship today allows us to foresee an innovation in good intelligence and in accordance with past values and knowledge. Can it be the tipping point for moving towards sustainable and resilient consumption?
This course proposes to explore the possible relationships between crafts and new technologies/digitals (both prospective and current) and their possible impacts on our future. The notions of time, manufacture, life and use of the object will be at the centre of the project.
