shaded sconce‘ by martin konrad gloeckle

bored with mass-production? scared of cultural globalization? emotionally disconnected from your consumption?  designers around the world are using technology to fight back and create a new economy based on craft, individualization and user participation in the process of creation.

yves behar‘s first curatorial project ‘technocraft: hackers, modders, fabbers, tweakers, and design in the age of individuality’ showcases more than 800 pieces by over 40 artists. selected works span the spectrum from collaborative projects facilitated through ‘crowd-sourcing platforms’ to outsider ‘hacks’ where manufactured products are adapted or modified by users.
