Budmen Industries is a post-digital workshop.
That means everything we make – from technology to art – is created by our team of humans and robots.
While it might seem like we are focused on the future, we are actually far more interested in discovering what is possible right now – we call this the Possible Present. All of our projects explore the creative possibilities of the latest technology.
To bring these ideas to life, we use Industrial Imagination: our method of bringing unconventional, imaginative, and artistic uses to industrial processes, tools, and materials.
We find that when you put a little industrial imagination towards exploring the possible present, incredible discoveries happen.
