'good things take time'
... well ... i hope that also applies to my research!
How is ‘craft’ changing through digitization? In my research I investigate a variety of phenomena that happen between carpenters and modern CNC joinery systems.
Is there a substantial change in 'their craft' ... what about their expertise, the tacit knowledge? are they still carpenters or just machine operators? and how do we build our wooden houses when everything (might one day) come from gigantic 3D printers?
I am sure that I will not be able to answer (all) these questions ... but at least I hope to make another contribution to the current debate on technology, work and the future in timber construction.
