Build Your Own: Tools for Sharing

New times call for new skills but the old ones have an important role too. Build Your Own: Tools for Sharing explores how digital technologies can come together with traditional processes of production and what democratisation of tools will mean for the future. 

Build Your Own features four newly commissioned projects by Will Shannon and Assemble, Linda Brothwell, Rachel Rayns and Raspberry Pi and DoES Liverpool and e-NABLE.

  • DoESLiverpool and Norwich Hackspace present a ‘production line’ of 3D printers which will be creating prosthetic hands for local people.
  • Linda Brothwell will present Acts of Care: Lost Letters of Liverpool which saw her restore missing letters in iconic building signs, alongside preparatory notes, mapping and material tests for a future Norwich intervention.
  • Artist Will Shannon and architecture collective Assemble’s new commission Homework explores living spaces as platforms for experimentation, production and learning. 
  • The project Neurotic Machines by Rachel Rayns developed with the Raspberry Pi Foundation shows us how a Raspberry Pi greenhouse can work as an alternative gardening system.
