Experiences with Voice to Design Ceramics

Bidragets oversatte titelExperiences with Voice to Design Ceramics
This article presents SoundShaping, a system to create ceramics from
the human voice and thus how digital technology makes new possibilities in
ceramic craft. The article is about how experiential knowledge that the
craftsmen gains in a direct physical and tactile interaction with a responding
material can be transformed and utilized in the use of digital technologies.
SoundShaping is based on a generic audio feature extraction system and the
principal component analysis to ensure that the pertinent information in the
voice is used. Moreover, 3D shape is created using simple geometric rules. The
shape is output to a 3D printer to make ceramic results. The system
demonstrates the close connection between digital technology and craft
practice. Several experiments and reflections demonstrate the validity of this

IJART addresses arts and new technologies, highlighting computational art. With evolution of intelligent devices, sensors and ambient intelligent/ubiquitous systems, projects are exploring the design of intelligent artistic artefacts. Ambient intelligence supports the vision that technology becomes invisible, embedded in our natural surroundings, present whenever needed, attuned to all senses, adaptive to users/context and autonomously acting, bringing art to ordinary people, offering artists creative tools to extend the grammar of the traditional arts. Information environments will be the major drivers of culture.
