Custom Cut: The present and future of micro-manufacturing Opening Reception

Friday at ArtFolk don’t miss:

An exhibition of digitally designed, customized and manufactured furniture and housewares by Industrial & Graphic Designer Andrew Thompson and Auburn Assistant Professor Jerrod Wyndham.

Digital fabrication has the potential to fundamentally change the relationship between designer and end-user. Computer Numeric Controlled (CNC) machines such as 3-D printers, laser cutters, and CNC routers ignore the economies of scale. The cost to produce one item is the same as the per-unit cost to create 1 thousand, thus enabling customization on a level not dreamt of at the turn-of-the-millennia. Custom cut, through select furniture and other products, explores the early evolution of digital fabrication.

Opening Reception at Art Folk Gallery, Friday, August 10th
Show Dates: August 11th-25th, Thursdays & Fridays, 12-4:30, Saturday 11-2
