Mechatronic Workshop + Laser Cutter Lab

Mechatronics describes an interdisciplinary overall system of mechanics, electronics and computer science. The workshop combines these sub-areas under the aspect of creative and artistic production, combining current rapid prototyping techniques with conventional processes to shape and design various materials. 

Technology is becoming increasingly important in art, absorbing the role of craftsmanship, and artists as autonomous individuals are becoming machinists. From a designer's perspective, machines, tools and materials bring their own language with them, and thus also appeal to other senses. That is why designers in particular should strive to use these new technologies and materials in a way that makes sense, and to rethink technological innovations by exploring the possibilities and effects of new and creative technologies on an aesthetic, formal and social level, and by engaging with them critically.
