In this one-week workshop, students and tutors created a series of “material” tests, not limited to tangible material, but also including its digital replica. We started from a natural material, oyster shells, and through recursive abstraction, translation, and materialization, we deprive the aura of the original material and celebrate the plasticity of the alchemical composite.
