FULL WORKSHOP TITLE:
small modifications, could we imagine public spaces as shared gardens of co-exisiting pluralities, where people are user-maker-carer-hackers all at the same time?
Who are we / Wer sind wir ?
Hey! I am xin from small workshop, we like to walk around and see what non-specialists do with the stuff around them – small modifications in daily life, a kind of ‘hacking with materials’. http://small-workshop.info
What will we do / Was werden wir machen ?
What can we learn from small modifications and everyday resourcefulness around us?
What parallels could we draw between hacking in the digital and physical spaces?
How could the makeshift creations from others be inspiring for our own lives?
Could we hallucinate public spaces as shared gardens of co-exisiting pluralities, where people are user-maker-carer-hackers all at the same time?
A hands-on, generative workshop that invites your participation on finding answers to these questions. We will draw inspiration from a resource* of lo-tech hacking/making-doing gathered from Asia-Pacific, Europe and Mexico City. We will experiment with using them as tactics and tools in our daily lives; share our improvisations and try out some 3D-mapping-kinetic techniques.
Through all the doing and sharing, could we gain new ways of seeing and being with the worlds around us, virtual and physical?
Time, Place & Supplies / Zeit, Ort und Ausstattung
2 hours. Maybe a table, but used cardboard boxes are ok too. Old bike tyres for the local workshop. Outdoor space is also fine.
