Live Stage: The Era of Objects [nl Rotterdam + online]

Blowup: The Era of Objects with Julian Bleecker (Nokia, Near Future Laboratory), Alexandra Deschamps-Sonsino (Really Interesting Group), and Anab Jain (Superflux) in an exploration of speculative design :: September 29, 2011; 8:00 -11:00 pm :: V2_, Eendrachtsstraat 10, Rotterdam + streamed live.

We are rapidly entering (and perhaps even have already entered) an era where we are able to print 3D objects at our desks, make and share laser-cut gifts for friends, and use off-the-shelf tools to plug these creations into the web and have them send status updates on our behalf. We have some commonly-held visions of the future, but what could our very wildest dreams (and nightmares) look like, beyond the cliché of the flying car? What answers can we find in speculative design? Our expert guests will explore these questions in collaboration with the audience in a hands-on, “open think-tank” format. Continue reading

Reblogged “Measuring Cup” by Mitchell Whitelaw

Posted on The Teeming Void by Mitchell Whitelaw: Measuring Cup is a little dataform project I’ve been working on this year. It’s currently showing in Inside Out, an exhibition of rapid-prototyped miniatures at Object gallery, Sydney.

This form presents 150 years of Sydney temperature data in a little cup-shaped object about 6cm high. The data comes from the UK Met Office’s HadCRUT subset, released earlier this year; for Sydney it contains monthly average temperatures back to 1859.

The structure of the form is pretty straightforward. Each horizontal layer of the form is a single year of data; these layers are stacked chronologically bottom to top - so 1859 is at the base, 2009 at the lip. Continue reading

On Yasmin, Roger Malina wrote: … are any of you involved in the FABLAB network?

Currently the labs include a laser cutter that makes 2D and 3D structures, a sign cutter that plots in copper to make antennas and flex circuits, a high-resolution milling machine that makes circuit boards and precision parts, and a suite of electronic components and programming tools for low-cost, high-speed microcontrollers.

TechnoCRAFT [us San Francisco]

TechnoCRAFT: Hackers, Modders, Fabbers, Tweakers and Design in the Age of Individuality — Curated by Yves Béhar :: July 10 – October 3, 2010 :: Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, 701 Mission St., San Francisco, CA.

The history of craft and design began with individuals making what they could not afford to buy, which created a deep and personal connection between owner and object. With the Industrial Revolution, the tradition of craft mostly disappeared as people became enamored with the abundance and affordability of mass-produced, high-quality goods. The rise of mass-production and mass-consumerism undeniably elevated the average person’s quality of life. However, the cultural sameness that materialized, combined with the loss of individual connection to objects, left many feeling dissatisfied. As a result, they took matters into their own hands.

Nonlinear Fabrication

nso.jpgAnnual NSO Conference’ Nonlinear Fabrication: Strange Loops in the Product’s Lifecycle :: April 3-4, 2008 :: University of Pennsylvania. Program.

Though matter itself has always found its expressions through nonlinear organizations, architecture’s modes of intervention in the life of matter have been linear and willful. As architecture continues its age-old struggles against material realities, the future holds astonishing possibilities as we slowly discern the nuances of complex material organizations and cultivate new regimes of expression.
