RISD, as a center of academic research in design, embraces digital fabrication: maker bots, laser cutters, and CNC routers are used daily and in high demand by a student body eager to expand the ways we expect to design and create form. Three dimensional modeling software that precedes machine productions is capable of creating millions of iterations and abstractions in a moment. Materials melt and burn. Powerful tools can escape us. We endeavor to learn what fabrication methods do, why, and how – keeping our eyes wide open to what technology may accomplish for us, and what we can achieve combining this with commitment to careful physical manifestation of our own thought.
