the electronic craftsman

'l'Artisan electronique', or the electronic craftsman, is an installation that lets people craft an object similarly to how a potter uses a pottery wheel. The only difference is that the process is simulated digitally, and users get visual feedback on a screen. At the end of the process, the finished digital file is printed by a 3d printer. We indeed seem to be heading to a new age of arts and crafts, where the physicality of the materials is simulated, so we can use any software tool to create whatever we like.
