前十几年,新型制造空间出现在中国的城市里,他们逐渐改变了创造技术的方式。近期,国际创客人士对于中国的新制造流程和基础建設表示出浓厚地兴趣。同时,中国政府又提出要把创新概念,实际运用到开发新型产业当中去,并与世界接轨。

”创客城市”是瑞士洛桑理工大学的一个研究项目,研究的课题是中国十几年以来创意空间的变化和发展。本次工作坊将会介绍洛桑理工大学”创客城市”项目的研究结果,包括最近他们在上海和深圳做调研的成果。

我们会发布”创客城市”小册子的第一个版本。来自香港DSL创客空间的Michelle Poon也将会介绍她的新书 The Field Guide to Hacking.

工作坊 (下午2到5点) : 把网络里所搜集到的数据用做地图的方式呈现出来,并裝訂成冊。

团队成员将会为大家讲解工作坊的具体工作方式和流程,包括如何画地图与可视化图片,并且在短时间内怎样创造和出版一本带有设计感和实验性的书册。

同时,参加活动的朋友将会学习裝訂书册的技术,还有制作小电子板的基本焊接技术(欢迎小朋友们的加入)。

讲座 (5:30点) : 关于 “创客城市″项目的研究成果

Clément Renaud, Monique Bolli, Florence Graezer-Bideau & Marc Laperouzza · 瑞士联邦理工大学(洛桑)

团队成员以及参与本次项目的其他研究员,当中包括人类学家,设计师,地理学家,建筑师,经济学家,创客。

今年年初, 项目团队在深圳和上海考察做调研工作,主要考察中国城市里的新型技术产业与其创造的流程。讲座将会重点介绍“创客城市″项目的研究结果

书发布会 (6点) : 《The Field Guide to Hacking 》 Michelle Poon · Dim Sum Labs 创客空间 (香港)

Michelle Poon是香港Dim Sum Labs创客空间的创造者之一。她将会带着自己的新书《The Field Guide to Hacking》与大家见面。

Michelle Poon 的工作范围界定于艺术与建筑的边界。她的作品时常会用工程和交互设计去创造身临其境的感觉。同时,技术和社会关系也是 Michelle Poo 长期的研究课题。

自由交流 ( 晚上8点 ): 讲座结束后,是活动参与者们的交流时间,与此同时,主办方会为大家准备一些简餐。
欢迎你的加入,谢谢 !

Date: Saturday March 10th 2018
Time: Workshop : 2pm-5pm / 5:30-7pm : talks
Language: English+Chinese
Place: Shenzhen Design Center, Shangmeilin, Zhongkang Road 8, Futian district, Shenzhen —— 上梅林中康路8号雕塑院圆筒

During the last decades, Chinese cities have seen the apparition of new industrial spaces that have transformed radically the ways technologies are produced. More recently, stakeholders of a growing “maker movement“ have become gradually interested by this gigantic production infrastructure, while governmental policies started promoting technological innovation as the new engine of national economy and global outreach.

Mapping Spaces for Making is a research initiative that aims at documenting the encounters between multiple dynamics around the production of technologies in China during the last decade. This workshop will introduce early results of the project, and the outcomes of a 10-days fieldwork and writing session in Shanghai and Shenzhen.

We will release an early version of the book Mapping Spaces for Making. We will also have thev pleasure to host Michelle Poon from Dim Sum Labs hackerspace in Hong Kong to introduce her new book The Field Guide to Hacking.

WORKSHOP (2-5pm) : From Web to Book · Bookbinding maps and digital content

Our team will present and explain the experimental process of 1) producing maps and visualizations during fieldwork and 2) bring local and remote contributors to write together about spaces for making in China. We will introduce the fieldwork and writing strategies that has been developed as well as our web-to-print workflow to turning results into a printed book.

Attendees will learn about bookbinding technics by making their own printed issue of the book. We will also offer short introductions to basic electronics and soldering - all ages : kids and adults welcome!

This book is open to contributions. If you are interested, please check the writing guidelines.

RESTITUTION (5:30pm) : Mapping Spaces for Making

by Clément Renaud, Monique Bolli, Florence Graezer-Bideau & Marc Laperouzza · Institute for Area and Global Studies, EPFL

From February 28th to March 10th 2018, we have been hosting a fieldwork session in the cities of Shanghai and Shenzhen. Ethnographers, designers, makers, geographers, architects, policy-makers, media archeologists, and artists came together on and offline to recollect the unique story of making technology in China. We will resitute what have been done during the 10 days and present the early outcomes of this ongoing research initiative.

BOOK LAUNCH (6:00pm) : The Field Guide to Hacking · by Michelle Poon · Dim Sum Labs Hackerspace (Hong Kong)

Michelle Poon from Dim Sum Labs hackerspace in Hong Kong will present her new book The Field Guide to Hacking.

Today, many everyday citizens remain in a world of quasi-magic where they believe only a special-class of techno-wizards (engineers, etc.) really understand what is going on. As a hackerspace, Dim Sum Labs strive to open up those black boxes and reveal the hidden mechanisms with their opportunities and dangers. The goal is to empower users through knowledge and provide them with the tools to take true control and ownership over their digital helpers. Thus, the intent of this book—to shrug off the misnomer and offer a handshake to the greater community—it is only reasonable to encourage others to hack, by showing you how.

Michelle Poon works in the field of architecture, art and research by combining engineering and interaction/user experience design towards immersive environments. The investigations are to examine patterns in perceptual mechanisms and social identities emerging in points-of-tensions: the physical and virtual, and the technical and abstract.
This project was made possible by DESIGN TRUST, an initiative of the Hong Kong Ambassadors of Design.

The day will end with drinks and snacks.
