Extrusion processes are usually used for the production of continual strands, such as steel profiles or clay bricks. But what are the results when a motion is introduced into this constant flow?
Martina Häusermann explores the potential of dynamic ceramic extrusion at the crossover between design, artisanship and industry. The controlled re-programming of the production process via the development of moveable dies allows innovations to be generated out of the process itself. Dynamic structures, shape transitions and interfusings open up myriad applicational possibilities. By having elaborated the technical and formal fundamentals, the perspectives for the broad potential are evident, be it for serially finished unique items in the crafts or industrial adaptations of the process for architecture.
