With the introduction of new technologies to art and design, the debate of handmade versus digital has continued to divide opinion.
My aim was to explore and determine the “value” of handmade processes and outcomes, and why they should have a place in this digital era. Most designer makers regard digital technologies as an aid that runs parallel with more traditional methods of working.
I looked at traditional Scottish crafted objects and revolutionized them with modern techniques; it was intriguing to see the comparisons between the traditional and contemporary works. I acknowledge the significance of evolution which is essential overtime, however I believe traditional handcrafted methods can coexist with technology.
