1 background/(re)constructing / ecological experiments
As someone beginning to study history, I have been thinking about how to incorporate some notion of history into my work in this class. Each machine, method, and skill can be traced; the ethos of the class and the fablab can be considered; each assignment could be understood as the way in which these protocols allow for a re-thinking of a process. The set of images below are part of an archive titled EcoRedux, assembled by Lydia Kallipoliti and Amie Shao that documents ecological material experiments of counterculture architecture from 1959 to 1975. Breaking into this archive of experiments could provide a source for (re)considering ideas of self-sufficiency and the role of technology in today's context.
2 ideas / appendage / interface
(madeline schwartzman/lawrence malstaf)
2a a (re)construction of an experiment found in the archive; considers the idea in its new context and possible changes/enhancements with tools available today
2b information appendage / pregnancy
an appendage to the body that begins to quantify, and physically document and exhibit the information consumed by a person at a particular moment or period in time to affect the body – perhaps through restricting movement or access to information.
