You can make (almost) anything
Iason Pantazis presented his ongoing research concerning the Commons in Architecture and Design at the "Un-Co-nference" series of lectures and workshops, organised by the curatorial team of P2P Lab. His lecture "You can make (almost) anything" focused on the new media of production and the rise of the 4th industrial revolution through the context of Digital Fabrication Laboratories.
The Un-co-nference sets in its core the new age of the Commons. Examples range from urban space to open-source technologies. Locals and visitors are invited to attend and differ, hopefully get inspired and enrich their collective imaginary.The lecture was presented as a cooperation with K.
