We are makers before everything else: we get their hands dirty, burn their fingers with soldering irons, test and tweak our computer-aided tools. And do what we make? We make objects to inspire and make us wonder and reflect on our relationship with electronic, networked and digital media.
We are practitioners representing 9 different disciplines who came together in the Willem de Kooning's Digital Craft program. We invite you to witness an exhibition of our progress and engage with our emerging practices in craft and technology.
The exhibition is presented in three parts: Pertaining to Fingers explores the historical meaning of the word digital and the relationship between technology and the hand; Fantastic Forgeries proposes an alternative version of Dutch material culture – ripped, replicated and remediated from the Museum Boijmans van Beuningen; and Real Time presents poetic experiences that question space, time, and our relationship with the real.
