HOMO FABER 3.0 Call FOR PROJECTS AND SUBMISSION
This call for projects is intended to receive applications from interested parties in publicizing practical research related to the use of digital fabrication technologies in Latin America. Upon selection by the curator team, they will be presented at the exhibition “Homo Faber 3.0: Appropriation of Digital Fabrication from Latin America”, to be held in November 2022.
For this version, the following categories are promoted: Artistic/Hacking | Bottom up / Community / Craft | Construction Components | Low-High Technologies | Robotic Strategies | Pedagogical Elements | Mobile Fab Labs
Homo Faber 3.0: Appropriation of Digital Fabrication from Latin America is inspired by local challenges, vulnerable communities, and semi-peripheral geographies, from the creative strategies that drive pioneers, developers, and end-users in our region with digital fabrication, as an ally of their processes of design, in any of its forms.
Homo Faber 3.0 explores the domestication, interpretation, and application of digital fabrication in the region, which stimulates the logic of technological appropriation of Homo Faber, beyond simple curiosity, automation, and personalization, to distance itself from the modest technological manipulation of Homo Fabricatus. Appropriation as a critical practice makes visible processes that create the foundations of a digital culture that establishes local agendas for other geographies, implementing technical solutions in synergy with situated ecosystems.
This invitation to Homo Faber 3.0 hopes to reveal inspirations and synthesize thoughts from making objects, spaces, and environments.
