Research Feature: Alienation and Meaning in Production and Consumption
On 12th and 13th January we presented some of our most recent work in progress at the Symposium on Alienation and Meaning in Production and Consumption, hosted by TU Munich. The purpose of the symposium was to bring together researchers excited about ways to make work, products, and consumption more meaningful and less alienating. One way this can be done is through interventions that connect producers, products, and consumers, for example through operational transparency, identifying recipients, producers, or consumers, and other forms of humanizing people. If you are interested in learning more about our work we invite you to visit our live lab at the MAK museum (Exhibition: handiCRAFT – Traditional Skills in the Digital Age).
