From METAMECHANICS to POSTDIGITAL / Homage to Tinguely

Παρουσίαση των σπουδαστικών θεμάτων του μαθήματος Ειδικής Οικοδομικής 9ου εξαμήνου της Σχολής Αρχιτεκτόνων Ε.Μ.Π. - Σχεδιασμός Διάδρασης - Έφαρμογές Arduino - Aναφορά στον Tinguely
Διδακτική ομάδα: Δ.Παπαλεξόπουλος, Α. Καραμούζη, Χ. Τριάντος, Ε. Βουλιούρη, Κ. Μπαλή, Γ. Αδαμόπουλος
« L’art de la distinction réelle chez Tinguely est obtenu par une sorte de décrochage comme procédé de la récurrence. Une machine met en jeu plusieurs structures simultanées qu’elle traverse ; la première structure comporte au moins un élément qui n’est pas fonctionnel par rapport à elle, mais qui l’est seulement dans la seconde. C’est ce jeu, que Tinguely présente comme essentiellement gai, qui assure le processus de déterritorialisation de la machine, et la position du mécanicien comme partie la plus déterritorialisée. » (L’Anti-Œdipe, p.476)

Open Source Computer Aided Robot. Charalambos Triantos - Eirini Vouliouri  "HUM(erus) is a project currently being developed within the context of ATRU - Architectural Technology Research Unit, at the National Technical University of Athens. It refers to a small-scale programmable robotic arm, which functions on the basis of four servo motors, controlled through the Arduino platform. Implementing the main principles of digital fabrication, HUM(erous) envisions to become a hardware tool for designers, capable of performing different tasks and operations, while at the same time being affordable, portable and open-source."

Re-Public The political economy of 3D printing

by Vasilis Kostakis and Michalis Fountouklis

"Customisation and variance seem imperative in a fast changing world.

It has been a common assumption during the last decade or two that the world has been shifting towards information- and networked-based structures, with information production in the limelight. During the installation period of the current techno-economic paradigm, based on and led by Information and Communication Technology (ICT), two parallel shifts have taken place: not only did the economically most advanced societies move towards an information-based economy, but the declining costs of ICT also made them available to a much wider part of the world population

This has led to the creation of a new communicational, interconnected and virtual environment from which new social productive models are emerging, which seem to be radically different from the previous industrial ones. These models are being formed by and form, disperse communities of experts and amateurs which collaborate towards the realisation of certain information production projects."
