It has been important to me to situate digital fabrication technologies as based in materiality and embodiment, and insist that Nature is inherent in this process too. These objects, 3D printed in clay, evoke a sense of the human body’s delicacy, weight, fragility, and sensual experience.  The particular physical properties of clay act as a foil to the pure mathematic code sent to the machine. Clay remains clay, just as bodies remain bodies. And yet, my experience of these objects somehow complicates my insistence that digital fabrication is inherently embodied. They have brought me a sense of the digital as indeed existing outside of the body somehow, something like the soul.
