dear autonomatic...
Hello, we are Autonomatic.

We do research that explores the use of digital manufacturing technologies in the creative process of designing and making three dimensional objects.

We are design practitioners with skills and experience in designing in ceramics, metals, glass, plaster, plastics, amongst other media. As creative researchers we have a basic urge to invent new ways of making things, to ask “what if?” , “so what?” and “what next?”. Through our individualistic and autonomous approach to using digital technologies we hope to inspire other designers and makers to approach digital technologies with a creative mindset.

The digital manufacturing technologies we use, developed through science and engineering research, have until recently been relatively inaccessible to individual creative practitioners. Their use as an integral element in small scale production opens up opportunities for micro design businesses to operate in wider design fields. This activity forms part of a digital manufacturing revolution – a revolution that has the potential to enable mass customisation and highly responsive localised production, perhaps even in the home. Through our research we want to challenge perceptions of the boundaries between craft and industrial production and raise the profile of making in 21st century design culture.
