DEAF2012 Highlights so far…


I’ve survived the Symposium and day 1 of a Crafting The Future workshop involving 3D printing and textile techniques. 

Highlights so far are seeing Philip Beesley talking about his work and then seeing one of his sculptural installations in the flesh at the DEAF2012 exhibition in Rotterdam… Really really SPECTACULAR!


(crap photo, sorry!)

Another was hearing Tim Ingold talk (he’s a social anthropologist by the way)… woweee!! When I heard the phrase “etheral cosmic infinity” I knew my mind had just been blown! Inspirational stuff to say the least.

And last but not least was trying to develop some ideas which we then tried to print in 3D… Not sure how 3D we were getting but I’m hopeful that tomorrow morning will be even more productive with some ideas that were developed later on… Watch this space for some photographic evidence of our creations!

    We absolutely need to talk when you get back. I have a project I’d like to discuss with you. Social, technological and textiles, rolled into one.
