Digital | Analogue: Personal Digital Fabrication Systems

Main Article Content

Tomás Vivanco


The article summarizes the elaboration of a theoretical and projective body of work developed by the author through design studios VII and VII of Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile’s School of Design, as well as from work done at the Digital Fabrication Lab Santiago (Fab Lab Santiago). Diverse systems of personal digital fabrication are described, highlighting Sandbot. These systems seek to propose a new language around technologies oriented to digital fabrication of objects, gathering local contexts through materials, stimuli from the surroundings and interaction with users.
