This blog is an outboard repository for the PhD research project I am undertaking at Gray’s School of Art, Aberdeen, UK. The research examines the notion that new sets of creative, cultural and economic conditions exist for artists, designers and architects as a result of recent developments in 3D imaging, rapid prototyping and rapid manufacturing technologies. The research seeks to critically map how these technologies are impacting on current disciplinary boundaries and areas of practice within a hybrid, convergent field.
I started the research in October, 2004 – so there is some catching up to do. Hopefully I will be dumping a year’s worth of thoughts here soon.
