chris jackson: digital readymades

yesterday, we mentioned tomoko azumi’s birdhouse project which will be part of TEN‘s contribution to 100% design london 2009. this year, TEN goes digital through projects which still encourage sustainable life through designed objects, products and ways of communication, but through the use of digital manufacturing applications.

another one of the projects on show will be digital readymades by chris jackson. the project is meant to revive broken or discarded objects by reappropriating them and extending their lives. digital readymades uses laser cutting and rapid prototyping technologies which are accesible public as well as through online resources such as ponoko and shapeways who support jackson’s project.
