This presentation describes how various digital tools, including kinematic simulation and 3D scanning, were used to generate, fabricate and document the EKM Works “Grace” installation for Karen Millen.
Emma-Kate (EKM Works) is a London based Architect, Artist and Musician. In addition to her work with the multi-disciplinary engineering and design group, Geometrics, she is committed to a number of personal architectural, art, sculpture and furniture design commissions. In 2011, Emma-Kate graduated with distinction from unit 23 at the Bartlett school of Architecture; a unit committed to exploring experimental digital fabrication techniques and the process of “design through making”. She now teaches design to undergraduate students at the Bartlett. Her multidisciplinary approach is centered around the realisation of complex geometric forms using advanced fabrication techniques and technologies. Emma-Kate is also involved in a number of music composition and performance projects and she released two solo albums in 2015. She is currently collaborating with an experimental orchestra to prepare several of her original pieces for immersive, live performance.
