Title:


    Ornate Screens

Presenter(s):



Description:


    The talk “Ornate Screens“ investigates ornamentation of 3-dimensional surfaces using CAAD and CAAM, which allow the re-introduction of variation. Ornament has been abolished by the avant-garde in the first half of the twentieth century and ornamentation has been replaced by material aesthetic. This paper will argue that ornament is not a parergon, an unnecessary accessory, but that the parergon, the ornament, actually becomes the ergon, the main element.
