Olivier van Herpt and Sander Wassink work in collaboration to produce the body of work “Adaptive Manufacturing,” an ongoing experiment in which they research the relation between the machine and its context. Using scripts that distill shapes and texture from external phenomena, the data is then translated into a 3D printed ceramic object. Van Herpt, a designer based in The Netherlands, produces his own 3D printers to explore the possibilities of 3D printing in clay. His work has been exhibited across the world, most recently at Cooper Hewitt in New York, and the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam.
