Hybrid Basketry: interweaving digital practice within contemporary craft

Hi I hope you will like my new video... Although only one project was done using Grasshopper (with a modified version of, I still believe it will be of interest to people here...

Contemporary 3D printing and traditional craft rarely meet in the same creation ‐ they tend to live in different worlds. In this video, I present an idea for merging these two distinct traditions. To that end, I developed Hybrid Basketry, a medium where 3D printed structures are shaped to allow the growth and development of hand‐woven patterns. While the 3D printed plastic elements contribute the aesthetics of the digital curvatures and manifolds, the hand‐woven reed, jute, and canvas fibers infuse the baskets with a unique organic appeal.
