The Algorithmic Ceramics by Francesco Perego is a collection of 3D printed large clay objects that explore the potential of design using the “G-code” as a creative tool, taking it to a second level (the G-code is the language used by CNC machines users). Today 3D printed ceramics are made from layers that characterize the object’s surface, and use the “slicing” software which follows the volume of the 3d model. Perego’s ceramics are slicing free: he directly generates the code from a path, which includes a series of controlled variables useful to obtain unexpected results. This way the code defines the plasticity of the material, with unpredictable results.
