Und das kann nicht gut ausgehen…
Edwin is an intelligent young man who is highly skilled with technology. Having recently graduated from University, Edwin does not have a disposable income and so lives in an undecorated, single-roomed bungalow with only the old family computer to keep him occupied. Rather than buying furniture with what little cash he has, he has chosen to blow it all on a single extravagant purchase – a 3D printer. You know what they say: Intelligence does not necessarily go hand-in-hand with common sense.

We want to see 3D printing, FabLabs and Hackerspaces become a regular feature at every public library!
This video was made in support of Lauren Britton-Smedley’s proposal to create a pilot FabLab at the Fayetteville Free Library. This is Lauren’s final project for the “Innovation in Public Libraries” class taught by Meg Backus and Thomas Gokey. In this class we look at avant-garde art from the past 60 years (social sculpture, relational aesthetics, institutional critique, interventionist practice, hacker/maker/DIY culture) and use it as a way to rethink what the library of the 21st century could be. We remain committed to the essence of a public library as a genuine commons, as a university of the people, as a place where the knowledge of past generations is preserved for present and future research, in short: as a democracy machine. Our class asks how to translate this essence of public libraries into our current situation. The class is, in some respects, run as a studio where each student proposes and then actually creates a project like this one.
