Tailoring experimented with how much the digital eye and hand of the 3D scanner and printer could pick up qualities of textiles. First a textile vase was hand stitched. It was then 3D scanned, 3D printed, and slip cast into porcelain.
The exhibition reveals the multiple dialogues involved in the process of making: between maker and textile vase, textile vase and digital producer, digital producer and polymer vase, polymer vase and maker, and polymer vase and porcelain.
