Makers revolutionise making

Date of publication: November 18, 2015

Abstract:

Based on ethnological research within the Berlin DIY scene, this study aims to throw light on the contemporary maker sub-culture. The trend of making has an impact on consumer culture: starting as a critical counter-project, the idea transforms and stimulates the mainstream society by influencing the culture of consumption. Be it reflection, critical examination, creative enhancement of pre-fabricated goods, or self-determined manufacturing of products. Indeed, there are opportunities to utilise the trend of making that can be answered by profound insight research. We will explore ways to use the fun and involvement the maker movement is based on, to find a productive and creative way for our clients to use the subversive power of making.
