Combination of digital manufacturing and personal manufacturing: the industrialization of the Maker Movement.
In the recent years the maker movement has started emerging, in part because of people’s need to engage passionately with objects in ways that make them more than consumers. Particularly the Digital Fabrication Laboratories (Fab Labs) form part of a larger “maker movement” of high-tech do-it-yourselfers, who are democratizing access to the modern means to make things. Nothing can stop us from making (almost) anything. We live in the 3rd Industrial Revolution.
What People Will Learn:
* What is the Fab Lab global network, how do Fab Labs work and how do they contribute to the 3rd industrial revolution
* What can one make in a Fab Lab with photos of examples
* Co-design and co-creation
* The benefits of digital fabrication, programming and electronics in the fields of art and design
* How we thought of being digital nomads artist / designer and fabricating our prototypes or 1:1 scale products
About the speaker:
After having practiced as a qualified architect in Athens and Barcelona, Olivia is now part of the Cardiff School of Art and Design academic team enjoying lecturing at undergraduate and postgraduate level and researching in the fields of Digital Fabrication and interdisciplinary creative projects.
The 7 years of working for Cardiff Metropolitan University she has led and taught in Interior Architecture, Architectural Design and Technology, Product Design, Maker, and has offered multidisciplinary projects to students across the 7 courses of the Cardiff School of Art and Design. Olivia is the driving force behind Fab Lab Cardiff, which she has co-founded in 2011.
Next year her plan is to travel and use the Fab Lab platform for her online design office, to design and fabricate products and small-scale architecture.
