Due to overwhelming response, UMAG is organising two additional Digital Craftsmanship Workshops with Tobias Klein. Please note that this workshop was offered previously on 20 June, 21 June and 27 June 2020.
As part of the exhibition Metamorphosis or Confrontation, the artist Tobias Klein will host a series of workshops with a focus on 3D scanning and printing. Participants will scan found objects, digitally alter and design the scanned forms, and then 3D print the results.
The Workshop – Digital Craftsmanship – will allow individuals to investigate motifs, contemporary forms, and 3D printable ornaments based on 3D scans of the museum's ceramic artifacts. This scanning work will then lead to discussions concerned with critical issues of contemporary design, including artificial biology, generative design, hybrid forms, and narratives.
Participants will use state of the art structured light scanning equipment and  hotogrammetry-based methods to create 3D models that explore the full digital manufacturing process, translating the values, concepts, and ideas of each object into a contemporary 3D printed form.

Artist: Tobias Klein
Born in Bonn, Germany, Tobias Klein is a German Artist/Architect. He is currently an Assistant Professor in the School of Creative Media at City University of Hong Kong.
Klein’s combined artistic and architectural works construct the emerging practice of Digital Craftsmanship, through which he has established an operational synthesis of digital and physical materials and tools as poetic (Poïesis) and technical (Technê) expressions. Klein’s works are based on the use of contemporary CAD/CAM technologies with site and culturally specific narratives, intuitive non-linear design processes, and historical cultural references.
His work has been exhibited internationally at the London Science Museum, the V&A, the Venice Architectural Biennale, the Science Gallery (Melbourne), the container (Tokyo), the Bellevue Arts Museum, the MoCA Taipei, and the Museum of Moscow and Museum of Vancouver. His works are also found in the permanent collection of China’s first 3D Print Museum in Shanghai, the Museum of Glass in Tacoma (USA), and the Antwerp Fashion Museum (MoMu).
