What would be a space that welcomes use and abuse, one that thrives on appropriation? How to make time and place for research, with life in the middle? What kind of interfaces could support collaborative work, and make different publics swap territories? Moving from the kitchen to the workshop and into the lab, this presentation walks through past and present proposals (some more successful than others), to think through the characteristics of such a space.
Femke is in Madrid in the context of the Libre Graphic Research Unit, a traveling lab where new ideas for creative tools are developed. In this context she introduces the topic of creating experimental spaces for collaborative prototyping in Medialab-Prado.
