nakolene / makeshift

Already third exhibition organized by the platform crafts.sk titled “nakolene / makeshift” presents the results of two workshops with the aim to confront hand woodworking with home 3D printing.

#nakolene

The course “nakolene”, co-organized by project “Piliny v hlave”, was attended by group of design students and its goal was to experience the basics of working with wood. The workshops were led by Branislav Hrebík and the participants were getting familiar with the basic material properties, processing and preparation of material, surface finishes, decorative techniques and basic design wood joins.

#makeshift

The workshop “makeshift”, which was organized in collaboration with Matej Korytár’s startup “Tvaroch”, explored the digital shift of the “do-it-yourself” phenomenon. The aim of the weekend workshop was to test the possibility of online tools for creating 3D models (virtual potter’s wheel) and to find the boundaries of domestic “production” with affordable 3D printer.

#exhibition title

Slovak phrase “na kolene” (literally “to do something on the knee”) is usually translated as “to do a makeshift job”. Name of the exhibition evokes an amateur production, creation without qualification or in hindered conditions – but as well the enthusiasm, improvisation and joy of the experiment. This already third exhibition organized by the platform crafts.sk titled “nakolene / makeshift” presents the results of two workshops with the aim to confront hand woodworking with home 3D printing.

The noun “makeshift” is used to denote a temporary instrument to be considered a substitute for something else. The words “to make” (create, do …) and “shift” (change …) give the name of the exhibition deliberate ambiguity. The installation reflects process and results of both workshops and questions the role of direct contact with the material in the contemporary design education.
