The Product Design Residency Program invited designer Thomas Grogan (RCA Design Interactions) from London for the April-June 2017 residency period. Thomas' work explores the use of ‘product hacking’ as a therapeutical instrument by subverting ready made objects through digital and physical interventions. During the residency, Thomas has experimented with ‘bas-relief ’, an ancient sculptural technique that, when adorning buildings and objects, praises the value of ornamentation in architecture and design. By using found 3D models as a main visual reference to create ‘bas-reliefs’, he has researched new ways to materialise the digital interpretation of our physical environment.
