This exhibit showcases the results of the Fall 2022 course Material Systems: Digital Design and Fabrication offered at the Harvard Graduate School of Design (GSD). For over a decade, faculty from the GSD have collaborated with the Harvard Ceramics Program to offer an experiential learning opportunity for design students that links research and experimentation in emerging digital technologies with the context of ceramic material systems. The course combines technological developments relating to the way in which things are designed (digital modeling, simulation, generative design, etc.) and the way things are made (automation, computer-controlled equipment including robotics, advanced materials, etc.) in search of new opportunities. Each object exhibited here is the result of prototyping and experimentation during the pursuit of a research question – it represents a step in a process of exploration, rather than a finished product.
This reception is free and open to the public. RSVP is appreciated.
Two events, one address! On the same evening, the Harvard Ed Portal right next door will hold a reception for the exhibition Derealization: Kurdistan, Art & Memory by Kamal Ahmad, in partnership with Artisans Asylum. More details & registration link for the Ed Portal event here.
