Maggie Rose David
2023-24 Graduate Resident
There is an idea that computer-aided work is unlike handmade, that
it lacks creativity and soul. Yet, I believe that it possesses a distinct
character that goes beyond being soulless. My work embraces the
“mistakes” of machines, resulting in a harmony between
handcrafted elements and technology.
With a passion for material properties, the sculptures celebrate
dialogue between human and machine, focusing on the human
traits and the “errors” of the printer. My aim is to dispel the fear
surrounding machines within art, capturing the “soul” of the machine
and highlighting how technology can broaden our understanding of
creativity and art.
