THE CRAFTMAN’S COMPOUND

Project by Nicholas Leigh
2018




The definition of luxury in the previous post-modernist society merely focuses on materialistic well-being, but in our post-work society, all aspects of life and material desires are automated. What we interpret as ‘Luxury’ thereby becomes the desire of ‘craft’ that symbolizes individual identity, value and representation.

The project aims to explore the relationship and coexistence of the human touch and machine made of craft products and artifacts in the automated mundane.
