With this project I have used 3D Printing and Scanning technology to create a space, where the human is removed from the design process and the only aesthetic that is exhibited is one that the computer has created internally.By using a repetitive 3D Scanning process I have created a method to reinterpret iconic designs of Gerrit Reitveld – designs, which are inherently different from the objects originally created by Reitveld, as the computer sees in a way we cannot understanding form as a collection of polygons, math and code.
Materials: A1 prints
Dimensions: Four pieces, each 594 x 841 mm
REFORM is the ability to test my design, to keep it fluid and allow it to morph and adapt. To take influences from the ever advancing world around me and remove subjectivity from my design process and never allow my design to be a fixed or set form.
As a designer Eddie Olin is interested in the juxtaposed relationship between technology and natural materials and the wish to create a space where one can influence the other. His method is constantly in progress.
Olins design work has a multidisciplinary approach coming from a graphic design background, but always with the fascination of building and creating physical outcomes. He has a close relationship with typographic and 3D work. To Olin the most important thing is the concept, and this is always what leads him through his work. He gets his influence from the world around him and uses it to discover, create and question his own understanding of design and modern society.
