I am an industrial designer and a writer. I am interested in industrial design, in writing, in technology, in art and craft. I have written books and articles about these subjects. I also like to blog about things that interest me. I also like to blog about what is not yet a coherent blog subject.

Trying to define something is an interesting process. It is like making something out of nothing, or finding the lost bit of a jigsaw piece. It is a creative act to make something out of nothing. The definition of design does not exist until there is a concept for it to describe. The definition becomes part of the history of the concept and the process of defining becomes part of the design process itself.

This site will be about the definition of Industrial Design, which has been changing over time. Industrial Art needs to be defined because it doesn’t exist as a recognised subject yet and it needs an explanation if anyone should think that they need one! This is also a way for me to understand what Industrial Art means and how it fits into other fields such as Design, Art and Technology.*/

Industrial art is a style that has elements of the industrial world, but is not considered industrial design. Some examples of Industrial art are the works of Andy Goldsworthy and Francis Alÿs. These artists use materials from the natural environment to create their art, as opposed to using materials derived from industry. Another term for this is Land Art (or Earth Art).

Industrial art is a very broad term and can be interpreted in many different ways. Some artists use industrial materials to create their art, while others use natural materials. There are also some who blend the two together, like Christo and Jeanne-Claude who used stacks of oil barrels to make their artwork. The important aspect of artistic creation is that it uses either industrial or natural materials to produce art.

The term “industrial” refers to a factory or any manufacturing process where raw materials are shaped into something else. Materials from factories and other manufacturing processes can be altered by an artist in order for him/her to create a work of art with it. One example of this is Dadaism which was an anti-war movement during World War I (1914 – 1918) and World War II (1939 – 1945). Dadaists believed that war was stupid, so they created coll

Industrial Art is a style of art that uses industrial materials, processes and structures. Industry has been an inspiration for artists throughout time but its usage was primarily as a subject matter and not as a medium. Industrial art is the use of industrial materials, processes and structures as a medium to create art.

Industrial Art is produced in factories, foundries and workshops. It is created by workers, engineers and designers. It could be considered “Work-Art”. Factory artists are usually concerned with the work process itself rather than the object produced. The idea that the craftsman should be able to understand what they make and how it works was a basic premise behind Arts & Crafts Movement in 18th century England and America. Industrial art includes work from Bauhaus, De Stijl, Russian Constructivism, Dada, Constructivist & Productivist Design movements in early 20th century Russia, Germany & Holland; Precisionism in sculpture & painting; Streamline Moderne design; Fluxus performances; Arte Povera and Neo-Dada installations; Pop Art graphics; Situationist International’s detournement of billboards and public signs; Punk rock graphics; Cyberpunk and Steampunk styles; contemporary street art such as Obey Giant’s Shepard Fairey’s

A term which is widely used but rarely explained. Industrial Art is art that is created for the purpose of being applied to industry, or art which applies industrial processes, technology or materials.

The definition of this term (which can be applied to fine art as well as design) has developed over a period of time. To understand its definition we need to look at the history of the terms art and industry.

The word

There are several meaning of industrial art. For example, we can consider industrial art as a craft and we can also think industrial art with its role in the structure of society.

In the first case, it is used as an equipment for mass production, but today it has been replaced by the machineries and the machine tools used to make mass production possible. In the second case, we understand that it is essential for the functioning of society and its institutions. To understand what industrial arts mean there is no better way than to understand that you can consult industrial artists.
