Babette Wiezorek is a product designer, art historian and researcher who works at the interface of materials, technologies and the processes that connect them. Her Berlin-based Additive Addicted studio focuses on additive and computer-aided technologies (3D printing) using fluid materials, ceramics in particular.
Wiezorek’s research activities are based on her fundamental interest in the natural and technical processes behind the creation of form. This interest led her to implement organic strategies such as feedback or regulatory circuits into the system of a 3D printer, challenging the potential of that technology.
In addition to the design studio, she teaches at various universities, and her work has recently been exhibited in Milan, Eindhoven and Berlin.
The Real-time Coding and the Aesthetics of Feedback Loops project examined the possibility of integrating organic strategies such as regulatory circuits and feedback into the system of a 3D printer. Sensory-evoked feedback changes the online coding of the printer‘s movement and influences the form of the artefact. This is made possible by using microprocessors as an open interface for sensory data and the adapted code.
