The Turtle Two and The Turtle Three at DMY 2010, Tempelhof, Berlin 2o1o
Scenography for the Makers Laboratory co-directed by Jay Cousins, Michelle Thorne, Gabriel Shalom, Pedro Pineda, Bas van Abel, and Luis Berríos-Negrón. The 2010 DMY Maker Lab was a five-day platform bringing together various practices to offer the DMY public a continuous series of workshops and events exploring new modes of production and material economies. The mobile scenographies for the Maker Lab, The Turtle Two and Three, continue to facilitate cultural interface, where these emerging creative societies can explore and shape the ongoing transition from the age of mass production into age of mass customization.
The 'Evolving Monument' became a system for cataloguing and displaying the objects developed during the DMY Open Design platform. As a process-based effort, it grew, changed, failed and/or succeeded based on the input of all the participants through the length of the 5-day event. The effort, initiated and moderated by Luis Berríos-Negrón and Aurel von Richthofen, complimented the workshop's archival dimension as a generative exercise to asses contemporary digital fabrication, its discourse and techniques.
