Slodowy Remixed at Copenhagen Maker 2017 !
A new collaborative project taking inspiration from cult Polish inventor Adam Słodowy will be premiered at this year’s Copenhagen Maker!
Słodowy Remixed will take a critical look at Adam Słodowy’s legacy as well as serve to refresh it for younger generations. Adam Słodowy is a legendary Polish inventor, who strove to popularise the ‘do it yourself’ approach in Poland. He hosted the well-known TV programme Zrób to Sam (editor’s translation: Do It Yourself) and published numerous books on DIY and the automotive industry. The project will question the new meanings and consequences of his DIY approach in the face of political and economic transformations.
The collaboration involves a short retrospective of Słodowy’s work. Approximately twenty of his most interesting projects are going to be recreated, his written works and fragments of the TV programmes he hosted are also going to be shown. The second part is an artistic project selected through an open call: a critical reinterpretation of Słodowy’s work by means of modern media and technology. The call will be addressed to various groups – visual artists, designers, DIY hobbyists and makers. The projects can be films, objects, interventions or websites. The sole restriction when it comes to the form of the projects has to do with practical issues stemming from the limited possibilities of presenting them in the physical space in Copenhagen.

Maker indtager Roskilde Festival igen i år
For femte år i træk indtager Maker Roskilde Festivalen, når vi etablerer vores Makerspace i Bycenter Øst og tilfører lidt gør-det-selv-aktivitet til festivalånden. Maker afholder i år Makerspacet i partnerskab med KEA
Society 4.0 rykker ind på festivalpladsen når vi tager et kig på fremtidens samfund og det stigende behov for at gentænke, hvordan vi arbejder, forbruger og lever i den digitale og teknologiske tidsalder. Makerspacet vil i år være et laboratorium for cirkulær økonomi, der inviterer festivalgæsterne til at reparere, genanvende og bygge lokalt ved hjælp af ny teknologi og ressourcerne fra campen, fx genanvende campens plastaffald med KEA Material Recycling Lab, reparere ødelagt udstyr, bygge festivalmøbler og meget, meget mere.
Herudover har vi sammensat et fedt talk-program: hør fx hvad f.eks. Nikolaj Sonne tænker om overvågning og hvad Mariano Alesandro fra INDEX mener om kønsdistribueringen i tek-industrien. Eller bidrag til at skabe Roskilde Festivals stemme 2017 ved at indtale din stemme i MultiVocals stemmesyntese. Du kan også lytte til musik, lavet af orme og algoritmer!
Maker takes on Roskilde Festival again this year
For the fifth year in a wok Maker will take on Roskilde Festival when we build our Makerspace at City Center East and add some DIY to the orange feeling. Maker is organizing the Makerspace and its activities with KEA.
Society 4.0 will move in at the festival grounds when we take a closer look at future society and the increasing need to rethink how we work, consume, and live ind the digital and technological age. This year the Makerspace will be a laboratory for circular economy where the festival goers can repair, reuse and build loccaly using new fab technology and ressources from the camping grounds: the can reuse their plastic waste in KEA's Material Recycling Lab, fix their broken festival gear in our Repair Café and much, much more.
To top that off we have put together an awesome talk program: hear what Nikolaj Sonne thinks about online surveillance and what Mariano Alesandro from INDEX feels about the gender distribution in the tech industry. Or contribute to MultiVocals voice synthesis and listen to music created by worms and algorithms!

Once again the MAKERSPACE will invade Roskilde Festival !!
This year MAKERSPACE is teaming up with the innovative school KEA (Copehagen School of Design and Technology). They are bringing their talented students to demonstrate how plastic waste materials and recycle processes can be applied in a sustainable way.
WORKSHOPS: KNOWLEDGE IS NOT ENOUGH. YOU NEED SKILLS
This year you can sew LED-light into your shirt to pimp up your dance or shred plastic and make a tent peg with KEA, make your own festival furniture, a Camp Blaster, print on t-shirts, make a crappy robot and much more.
Drop by MAKER to hear what e.g. Nikolaj Sonne from ‘So Ein Ding’ thinks about surveillance, and what Mariano Alesandro from INDEX thinks about the gender distribution in the tech industry. Or contribute to creating the voice of #RF17, by adding your voice to the voice synthesizer or listen to the music created by worms!
PLAY WITH TECH
Of course you can also play with technologies such as laser-cutters, 3D printers, VR-glasses, soldering irons, LED-lights and much more.
Stay tuned on facebook
