First Prize Making Gestures:
A personal Design and Fabrication system
Category: MACHINES By Diego Pinochet (Chile)
‘Making Gestures: a personal fabrication and deign system’ is proposed to explore real-time interaction between mind, body, and tools by using body gestures and imbuing fabrication machines with artificial intelligence. It’s A 5-axis CNC machine developed and programmed using machine learning algorithms, in order to learn and adapt to the uniqueness of the user. ‘Making Gestures’ is a cybernetic system that allows to design and make in real time, adapting ‘as you go’.
