YouFab event: The switch to your emotions - creativity workshop
mié., 14 de septiembre de 2016, 15:00 – 22:00 CEST
Introduction to the use of digital fabrication machines and to the process of creation by !ME - digital artist from Barcelona
The entries for YouFab Global Creative Awards are back for 2016!
From August 1st until October 31st, register your innovative project to the competition!
The awards, which are being held for the 5th consecutive year this year, recognize and celebrate creative works and inventions that stem from a powerful collaboration between digital and physical fabrication. This is based on the concept that Fab = creativity transcends and combines the digital and physical realms.
On September 14th, Fab&Feel will therefore celebrate the launching of the competition and invite you to become tomorrow’s maker.
A creativity workshop will take place during Fab&feel, YouFab Kick off party. The use of digital fabrication machines has spread out and is now commun. Their purpose is however sometimes being lost within the excitement of using new tools. The product shouldn’t be thought for the machine but the machine should serve the product that should serve its users.
This workshop will therefore focus on returning to the essence of production: the impact on the user’s feelings. Through a speculative approach and an introduction to use of digital tools, the participants will gather by pair to prototype a product provoking the switch to their emotions.
