Title:Considering Craftsmanship
Author(s):Rosner, Daniela K.
Subject(s):Craft
Craftsmanship
Everyday Creativity
Design Research
Abstract:Craft involves the application of human skill and invested time. Some have argued technology has undermined human expertise by replacing craftwork with automation, disposing of human ingenuity and proficiency. Can new technologies integrate skill, materials and labor with the products of craft? How does technology affect the use and significance of the crafted artifacts? Conversely, how does the craft process engender cultural value for creative practitioners? In this poster, I present a research agenda for the study of craftsmanship in everyday creative practice through new Information and Communication Technology (ICT). In the design of new technology, I seek to support the personal and social value of craft by extending the skilled work of the creative practitioner.
