In keeping with our wonderfully unpredictable and fast-changing culture, ModulA.R.T.’s focus on “changeability” stands conceptually strong. Many people decorate their homes with that one particular home in mind. The idea here is to invest in art that can adapt and mold to your next house - and the house after that. Decor doesn’t get much more forward thinking.
— The Times Union
Rattner perfectly illustrates how digital innovations in manufacturing are impacting art and design. Mass customization, co-creation, modular design, production on demand, digital design, robotics, and other computer-driven technologies are changing the way things are made (and as a result, the way art is thought about).
