The Most Visionary Postgraduate Design School


Woman vs. Machine, Domus Academy @ Herbaria

24 July 2018

The Domus Academy Experience Cluster took part in Woman vs Machine, an event organized by Scuola del Castello on the occasion of Herbaria Summer Camp.

Guests of Moleskine Café in Milan, the Scuola Superiore d’Arte Applicata del Castello Sforzesco launched a challenge for the Domus Academy Experience Cluster students.

On one side was the human component, the illustrators from Scuola del Castello; on the other side was the technological component: software, printer, and plotter.

For the event, Master in Interaction Design students designed and produced a series of drawing robots that are capable of generating and reproducing an illustration on a sheet of paper or on a page of a notebook.

During the event, the public could choose to whom to show their notebook: a human illustrator or a robot.

Who managed to create more illustrations? The object of the challenge favored small robots (mini-plotters open-source powered by Arduino), who managed to draw the largest number of leaves and thus won the challenge. However, this was only because the objective was “quantity.” Students of Scuola del Castello produced many beautiful and more detailed illustrations.

Congratulations to the students Nancy Kumar, Bhavika Harish Gajjar, Aditi Popat Kale, Shoheil Bhowmick, Shreepriya, and Koan Lin, as well as the Domus Academy team, composed of Michele Aquila, program leader of the Master in Interaction Design and Master in Service Design; Elisa Chiodo, program leader of the Master in Visual Brand Design; Danilo Gallo, academic assistant of the Experience Cluster; and Nima Gazestani, lecturer and interaction designer.
