MAKING TOGETHER WANTS TO FOCUS ON ONE OF TODAY’S HOTTEST TOPICS: THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN DESIGN AND PARTICIPATION.
NEW TOOLS, APPROACHES, PROCESSES AND WAYS OF SHARING CREATIVITY IN DESIGN: DO THEY EXIST? WHAT ARE THE INTUITIONS WHEN A PROJECT IS MOVED BY THE DIGITAL CULTURE WITH ITS SET OF NEW KEYWORDS SUCH AS CONNECTION, COMMUNITY AND CROWDSOURCING? WHAT HAPPENS IF THE “X USER” IS INVITED TO COLLABORATE IN THE DESIGN AND MAKING OF A PROJECT?
The heart of the exhibition is Tuft, a new macro-installation to “live in”, created by design-sensation Numen / For Use. The design trio’s work investigates the concept of the physical relationship between space and public as a potential generator of encounters and connections. Along with Tuft, Making Together will activate a sequence of six “works in progress” made by Italian and international designers and design teams, who have been asked to approach the concept of “making together”. With its “open lab” formula, the research field of these site-specific performances embraces a multidisciplinary view. Being both experimental workshops and mind factories, the Labs of Making Together aim to actively engage the audience in order to share the “design experience” directly..
