The seminar will introduce students to the concept of Material Agency and Digital Materiality to programme highly differentiated behaviors into a component based material system. Therefore we will look into robotic wood bending techniques and parametric design tools like Rhino/Grasshopper.The aim is the development of a re-shapeable material system of bendable wood components that can be “programmed” via a six axis robot. This will require the setup of a computational design model, deformation tools and robotic movement-rules to control the bending process. The final outcome will be a 1:1 re-shapeable sculpture based on the designed material system and the developed robotic movements.
