The project El oficio de las flores, is aimed, just like 3D printers, at converting two-dimensional images into real objects. The arrival of digital fabrication and maker culture has democratised the means of production allowing them to be accessed by more people: Anyone can reproduce an object with a printer. However, while this possibility includes us, it also eliminates the process: Often, the object is not touched until it is not finished. An essential part of the concept of this project is focusing on the process, starting from the question of how technological production focuses on the role of the economy of services and the promotion of design capacities while it belittles the traditional ways of manufacturing thus eliminating any trace of human and local influence.

This research analyses the potential ways to recover that lost connection into a coexistence of methods that should result in the intersection between the digital and the analogue, industrial design and the design of unique pieces.

When contemplating nature, do not loose sight neither of the whole picture nor of the detail, as in its magnificent vastness nothing is inside or outside, front and back are the same side in it. “Metamorphosis of plants” Goethe, 1790
