*** Out of stock *** 

 Out of Hand: Materializing the Postdigital examines the increasingly important role of digital fabrication in contemporary art, design, and architecture practice, demonstrating the reciprocal relationship between art and innovation as seen through the lens of emerging twenty first century aesthetics.

Out of Hand, the first publication to examine this interdisciplinary trend, accompanies a major exhibition at the Museum of Arts and Design, New York, bringing together for the first time an array of seminal works by more than 80 international artists, architects, and designers, including Ron Arad, Barry X Ball, Wim Delvoye, Zaha Hadid, Stephen Jones, Anish Kapoor, Marc Newson, Hiroshi Sugimoto, and Frank Stella.

The book is organised around six themes. Magnus Larsson’s proposed mobile 3D printer in “Modeling Nature” uses microbes to create habitable structures from desert sand. In “New Geometries" mathematical formulae inform the creation of intricate designs with distinctive angles and whorls. Historical decorative styles inspire the artists in “Rebooting Revivals” to rework the past for the present.
