How Motion Tracking Is Finding Its Way Into Design Craftsmanship
Expanding on traditional modeling, a Toronto-based designer is experimenting with how physical gestures can generate functional 3D topographies
Toronto-based designer Nate Asis has been refining Digital Hand through various iterations exploring motion tracking as a method to craftsmanship. Sub-projects like Skeleton Table, Wave Dish, and Dot Blanket work to help audiences grasp the ways in which motion tracking of the body can generate drawings and produce prototypical designs. The project also has an important underlying goal of showing how physical gestures and digital processing can inform each other in a streamlined, seamless process.
