PRODUCING: Materials

Producing deals with the nature of work in terms of human (or not) labor, materials, and manufacturing techniques. The Materials section includes both organic and synthetic material explorations such as fabrics made from seaweed with others knit from algae and chairs 3D-printed variously from PLA (polylactic acid) thermoplastic resin (the Voxel) and milled wood (Maker chair), the latter design offered open-source online for anyone who wishes to print it.
