Dagcad II

TU & Grafisch Atelier Daglicht

March 1998

TUE (Technical University Eindhoven) and Grafisch Atelier Daglicht jointly organised a workshop entitled DAGCAD II as part of the investigation into the relation between art and technology. The purpose of the workshop was to introduce twelve selected graphic artists to the expertise the TUE has developed in creating and modifying design drawings by means of computer-aided design. After having followed a crash course in 'working with AUTOCAD', the participants, making full use of the processing programmes of computer-aided design, generated a design for a print based on an individual sketch. The end results were printed by Daglicht and presented as a series of artworks ranging from etches to lithographs, silk-screens and booklets. The project concluded with a show in MU, a symposium at the TUE and a catalogue of artworks. Participating artists: Paolo Taborda Barreto, Jan Thijs Boekholt, Florette Dijkstra, Loek Grootjans, René Korten, Marc Nagtzaam, Sef Peeters, Goof Salimans, Carlo Storimans, Jolanda Traa and Kees Verbeek.
