Unspecified Clay

By Ianis Lallemand in collaboration with Co-de-iT 3D printing, 2016

An experimental robotic fabrication system producing self-organized clay structures through an iterative process of deposition, scanning, and computation. Through a closed feedback loop, successive clay additions build on top of one another — yielding an emergent and open-ended process in which material properties are not subordinated to a predetermined geometry, but act as catalysts for aesthetic and structural explorations.


This project has been developed in collaboration with Co-de-iT and has received support from the digifabTURINg research cluster as well as from EnsadLab and PSL Research University, in the context of the SACRe – PSL doctorate in art and design. Publication: Compagnia di San Paolo (Jan. 2017).
