Transformations: App DigiFab

Nov 4, 2022 - May 6, 2023

An exhibition of new design and art works showcasing experimental applications of computer-aided design and fabrication technologies.

Digital design and fabrication technologies have radically transformed the way artists and designers conceive and produce work. This exhibition explores how digital tools for design and fabrication are being utilized and taught by contemporary artists, designers, and architects, and how those tools influence the work being produced in various fields. A group of faculty and staff from Appalachian State University have come together to exhibit their new work using these digital tools in unique ways.

App DigiFab – the Digital Design and Fabrication Learning Community is a group of faculty and staff exploring the professional and educational use of computer aided design (CAD) and digital fabrication hardware used for three-dimensional design, visualization, and fabrication. The connecting link between all of them is the use of digital tools for creative work and problem solving.

While the tools used are similar (including 3D modeling software, 3D printing, and CNC machines) the application of those tools varies greatly among disciplines. This exhibition highlights that diversity in both subject and output, including two-dimensional images, sculptural objects, and architectural projects.

The group includes members from the departments of Fine Arts, Applied Design, and Sustainable Technology & the Built Environment, and explores multiple applications related to digital design, fabrication, and representation.
