The MOME Digital Craft Lab explores the intersections of the digital and the analog world, responding to the challenges of the information and technological society of the 21st century. The lab aims to achieve a contemporary, progressive and market-compatible reinterpretation of craft areas, built on craft traditions, within project-based R & D activities, using innovative technologies.
The program plan of the MOME Digital Craft Lab is closely linked to the content and infrastructure setup of MOME Campus Development. With regard to its activity the lab is unique in Hungary and belongs to forefront in Europe; in terms of its operation it is an economically mostly independent R&D&I lab that is horizontally integrated in education.
The thematic lab has three main directions of activity:
The MOME Digital Craft Lab’s applied research projects seek answers to the following questions:
- What can be the future of an object making approach that combines traditional craft knowledge with contemporary design perspective, focuses on the challenges of our times and uses innovative materials and technologies?
- How can the evolution of craftsmanship continue in a digital world without losing its values?
- How can the material sensitivity of craftsmanship make the transition to computer-based design and construction?
- How can one move from the material world to the digital surface and from the digital world back to the material format so that this move not only demonstrates the quality and speed of craftsmanship but a new design approach as well?
- How is it possible to develop educational methods based on fusion knowledge sharing that open up new avenues for modern skills development in terms of content and aesthetics?
