Location: Falmouth University, Cornwall, UK
Deadline for extended abstracts: 31 March 2014
The digital crafters in the Autonomatic Research Group at Falmouth University invite you to join them in critical debate about a radically transformed vision of 21st century production. In this brave new world of Makerspaces and Fablabs anyone can be a digital craftpreneur, harnessing the power of digital technologies to create, co-create, collaborate, make and sell.
Aimed at makers and researchers of all shapes and codes including hackers, crafters, inventors, designers, economists, curators and critical theorists, this two day conference will explore craft values, traditional making processes and novel forms of engagement, participation and interaction in digital and material cultures.
There are three broad themes we wish to explore: Materiality and Aesthetics, Enhancing the Object and Democratising Technology. More information on these and the conference exhibition and workshop opportunities can be found on the conference website.
We welcome contributions from both within and beyond the field of craft.
