FABIO SCHILLACI / COFAVACO
NO HEAR, NO SEE
Looking at the present state of the art of digital design and fabrication, most of the research already done over the world in the last 3-4 years is about classification and dissertations on digital techniques, approaches and practice methodologies. What I find very interesting is that we can already see the emergence of a more holistic approach from design to fabrication in the “next digital age”: a convergence of several digital technologies and issues could produce collaborative, associative and integrated models which would allow the improvement of design efficiency, its performance and manufacturing.
Starting from a digital point of view, I investigate the ways of form making in terms of a fluid logic of connectivity and of a dynamic organization between similar, but still different, elements.
In the realm of the digital the stable is replaced by the variable and singularity by multiplicity. More importantly, in the realm of the digital the system’s balance is just a temporary condition.
In my ignorance of Warsaw, I propose a system in which it is possible to address the future in an “Eco-Logical” and relational way: a system where it is still possible to organize internally complex components, share and re-use them by adapting to new situations.
The pictures I produced for Synchronicity present a sort of dynamic diagram, they symbolize the growing of that networked system which starts from the bottom/local and grows up in accordance with—and at times with respect to—the collective intelligence of its elements.
