The experienced Craftsman should be the expert in evaluating a new technology, but competitive pressure and temporary trends often lead to insecurity, frustration and lack of motivation.
This project deals with the transition phase from old to new. Two aspects are of interest: The search for possibilities on how to support artisans in this phase of change and the products created during this period (hybrids or skeuomorphism).
