Collective Dialogue: Tradition and Revolution, from myth to life
The digital revolution is now progressing towards artificial intelligence beyond smart things, which, at the same time, raises a question about the irreplaceable essence of human beings. What would “manual work” mean in the age of automation? Where are art and handicraft oriented to in this century, marked by radical changes? The collaboration project between designers and artisans, which had been in progress for five years in Korea, will serve as a valuable reference for those questioning whether innovation can start from time-honored techniques.
