installazione presentata nell’ambito dell’evento INTERNI ENERGY FOR CREATIVITY
Digital Lithic Design looks deeper into marble, as a natural material
that cannot be reproduced and that must therefore be processed while
equally limiting waste and use of energy. New technologies can make
an important contribution, if they are involved in the creative-design
process, towards the production of items with strong three-dimensionality and complexity with minimal waste of resources. The exhibition aims to highlight, through a number of works, the potential of technological excellence, processing capacity and creativity in the Italian natural stone industry.
As the heir to an ancient marble working tradition, Italy still ranks as a landmark capable of merging design, technology and processing skills.
New computer-controlled engineering systems and digital design today define a new frontier for this ancient material, thereby opening up new ways for designing and working natural stone.
