By Malcolm McCullough

PAPER A designer's argument for the continuing importance of craft in design work, even as that work becomes ever more involved with digital media and techniques. - 63 illus. MCCBH

In this investigation of the possibility of craft in the digital realm, Malcolm McCullough observes that the emergence of computation as a medium, rather than just a set of tools, suggests a growing correspondence between digital work and traditional craft. McCullough builds a case for upholding humane traits and values during the formative stages of new practices in digital media. He covers the nature of hand-eye coordination, the working context of the image culture, aspects of tool usage and medium appreciation, uses and limitations of symbolic methods, issues in human-computer interaction, geometric constructions and abstract methods in design, the necessity of improvisation, and the personal worth of work.

Malcolm McCullough is Associate Professor of Architecture and Design at the University of Michigan.
