Kiosk is a project that explores a near future
scenario in which digital fabricators are so ubiquitous, that we
see them appear on street corners, just like fast food today is
sold in NY style mobile food stalls. A place where you can quickly
get a custom made fix for your broken shoe, materialise an illegal
download of Starck’s Juicy Salif orange squeezer, that you
modified for better performance or quickly print out a present for
your sisters birthday.
How does this scenario challenge our perception of authorship,
originality, design and what is the role of the designer when goods
are moved around in the form of digital blueprints and appropriated
in ways beyond our control?
