To prepare to make The Dewey Organ we ran an Enquiry Machine Making Workshop at Makerversity.
Funded by an AHRC ProtoPublics ProtoProject award this ‘co-design’ experiment sets out to prototype ways of making problems and publics. It directly addresses issues central to the funding call and critical to practice-based researchers, designers and policymakers, namely: what counts as a social ‘problem’ and what publics do problems bring into being?
The workshop was attended by architects, coders, sew-ers, event managers, design and sociology students.
