A robotic 6 axis CNC arm, an extension of the craftsman’s hand and tactile knowledge, is programmed to hack a block of oak. By exploring the weaknesses, glitches, fractures, splits and rings of time stored within, a distorted Georgian archetype is extracted. Carving an artefact, a render, that could never have existed until the moment it was hacked. Charred to preserve it for another century.

The Hack Chair II is a continuation of Gareths conceptually rigorous research into digital crafting techniques.
