Postdigital Artisans: Craftmanship With a New Aesthetic in Fashion, Art, Design and Architecture by Jonathan Openshaw

Digital technology has irreversibly changed how we see, think and act. This book explores how as we spend more and more time online a deeper symbiotic relationship with the digital creates a desire for a tactile, physically immersive experience.


Exploring how post-digital artisans’ are influenced by the digital world, but reject strictly screen-based design and total reliance on automated production and embrace natural materials such as craft clay, metal, glass and wood in their work.


Postdigital Artisans profiles 60 contemporary artists and designers who neither reject technology nor glorify nostalgia and see materials as the heart of art, design, fashion and architecture.
