DESCRIPTION

Cody Norman’s work focuses on perceptions of automation and human capital through the use of industrial robots, 3-D printing, and handheld extrusion tools to transform recycled and bio plastics into functional art objects. Creating enigmatic forms that feel at once familiar and foreign, Cody’s process physically blurs the line between digital and hand craft. By nature, it seems the process of 3D printing gives you exactly what you want, how you want it. Every detail and surface is programmed. In Cody’s process, the robot can be “controlled” by his programming but more often than not what the process and output looks like on the program does not reflect the reality of the object as the process unfolds. Instead of forcing the machine to bend to his will and create an object exactly how he imaged it, Cody’s process of 3D extrusion printing is based on his relationship and conversation with the robot and process.
