Now and here, aims to establish from the beginning a privileged channel of communication between artists who are urged to collaborate and share their projects in an almost utopian way for our time. The ex-Filanda makerspace acts as a catalyst of resources for individual projects, which are created thanks to the contamination among artists who carry ideas, take shape with the support of 3D modelling experts on site, and become a finished product with the use of digital fabbricazione digitale (3D printers, laser cutting, CNC). In each phase of the project, the active involvement of a selected group of high school students is planned for a continuous and fruitful exchange of stimuli and knowledge for the benefit of the collective. Now and here is born as an open model of research, like doing in becoming.
Clear production constraints have been imposed on all the actors involved:
Time and limited size (each work must be contained in a cube of 25 cm)
Mandatory use of experimental materials with low environmental impact (bioplastics based on hemp).
Exclusive use of the digital manufacturing machines in the Makerspace.
