There is a revolution buzzing on the networks and in our cities‚ the maker revolution. Makery, a budding media agency propelled by an experienced and diverse team based in Paris, reports on the worldwide maker movement. During stwst48, Makery invites labs, makers, hackers and DIY coders across borders to take over the’s mapping space.
Makery treats information as raw material. The team of Makery travels across continents to discover makerspaces, hackerspaces, fablabs and hybrid spaces where the fabrication and applications of the future are being invented. The labs’ activities are diverse including open science, citizen politics, collective engineering, upcycling of antique musical instruments and electronic waste… Makery presents data-electro-visual networks with open and participatory lab encounter sessions, augmenting its map of labs with AV live streams, direct from Linz with connection to remote labs who share their information/practices and present their wild/serious projects. This is an event both online and in between walls, in Linz and on the networks, to celebrate the long-awaited reconciliation between the virtual world and the real world.
