The exhibition-workshop “Visual making” shows the experience and the findings of the User Group Visual Making, an open community focusing on the integration between digital fabrication, graphics and fine art printmaking.
The project has been promoted by the Milanese FabLab OPENDOT and coordinated by Claude Marzotto/Òbelo and Daniela Lorenzi/A14.
Throughout 2015 the VISUAL MAKING Group, composed by designers, artists and illustrators, has been exploring innovative processes for the production of printing matrices suitable for a range of craft-based techniques. By testing numerical control machinery combined with different materials, the User Group experimentation has highlighted some interesting opportunities for digital fabrication in the field of printmaking. The results are summarized in an opensource archive-handbook made out of twelve matrices, available at this website and in the exhibition booklet.
