Digital Embodiment: Transforming Reduction into Tessellating Multi-Block Relief Prints
This lecture delivers practice-led research from the artist’s position as print ‘maker’ within contemporary craft. The methodology embodies David Pye’s first-hand account of the workmanship of risk and the project integrates Computer Numerical Control (CNC) milling to overcome process limitations; to realise scalable complex multi-block relief prints and to allow further exploration in colour printing. The outcome reveals how digital embodiment of tacit knowledge in human-computer interactions, programmes the machine tooling to mimic hand-carving the matrix.
Victoria Browne is Associate Professor of Printmaking and Publishing, Art & Craft at KHiO. Her artistic practice is informed by post-industrial craft heritage and is situated at the intersection of tacit knowledge, machine tools and digital technology. Iterations of her artistic research have recently been exhibited as an artist’s book in Berlin, a wallcovering in Krakow, a billboard in Antwerp, a video in Hong Kong and a peer-reviewed article in IMPACT Journal IV.
