MA work

Due to modern technology many old technologies which had inspired advanced technologies in car makers are disappearing. Traditional technologies allowed car manufacturers to develop their own techniques. The specific way of traditional surface-building enabled the classic car to have a beautiful volume and unique shape, though old cars do not have refined surfaces and details. I want to develop a way of creating traditional volume using old technologies that display the value of hand craftsmanship.
