ALLEN, BARRY - Artifice and design: art and technology in human experience

Title: Artifice and design: art and technology in human experience
Description: Ithaca, NY. Cornell University Press, 2008. Hardcover. Dustjacket. 232 pp. Condition : fine. As familiar and widely appreciated works of modern technology, bridges are a good place to study the relationship between the aesthetic and the technical. Fully engaged technical design is at once aesthetic and structural. In the best work (the best design, the most well made), the look and feel of a device (its aesthetic, perceptual interface) is as important a part of the design problem as its mechanism (the interface of parts and systems). We have no idea how to make something that is merely efficient, a rational instrument blindly indifferent to how it appears. No engineer can design such a thing and none has ever been built.--from Artifice and Designtext. Mailorder only - Alleen verzending mogelijk. Condition : very good. . ISBN 9780801446825
