project_Bridging Art and Technology Residency

Höhr-Grenzhausen, Germany
Spring–Summer 05

This residency was organized by TRIALOG-Art, Craft and Designand the city council of Höhr-Grenzhausen, as part of the 'Cultural Summer of Rhineland-Palatinate'. The residency programme involved international artists and designers being invited to experiment with new ceramic technologies in order to develop new work. An exhibition of the work and symposium was held at the end of the project at the Westerwald Museum.

My proposal for this 4 week residency was based on using mathematics and geometry to develop 2D aperiodic tessellations which could be used to produce new low relief ceramic tile designs appropriate to contemporary architectural contexts. My rationale for using aperiodic tile shapes is that they can be arranged into an infinite number of different designs, so allowing the user to produce their own individual tile scheme from the two basic units. The moulds for these tiles would be CNC milled and the actual tiles dust pressed. Most of my aims for this project were fulfilled. However the tooling for dust pressing non standard tile shapes proved to be too expensive and time consuming for such a short project, therefore hand pressing plaster moulds were used to produce sample tile sets. I intend to develop this project further both in terms of tile design and looking into other more effective and appropriate forms of batch production, possibly through collaboration with industry.
