18:15 The Latest Revolution - Personal Fabrication in the Digital Era
Ohad Meyuhas, CO-Manager and Co-founder, Fab Lab Israel
The latest industrial revolution is already here. The transition from mass production to personal fabrication created a need for local fabrication laboratories. We will examine the fabrication possibilities of today and the opportunities it holds for the future.
Above all of that is the maker, the user, who is now the designer and fabricator. What is the user's role and what is the designer's role in a reality where any one of them can replace the other?
This talk will be in Hebrew
19:30 Break and 3D printing exhibition by XLN
20:00 Film: Maker - a documentary on the maker movement
The team who made Design & Thinking, a film that inspired audiences worldwide, recently completed Maker - a documentary on the Maker Movement and its impact on society, culture and economy.
The 'Maker Movement', sometimes called the 'Third Industrial Revolution,' subverts traditional manufacturing by building on innovative concepts such as open source, local manufacturing, crowd funding, and digital fabrication. Breaking the hobbyist movement stereotype, 'Maker' delves deep into this ecosystem of design and manufacturing in the Internet era. The film explores the ideas, tools, and personalities that are driving the Maker Movement – and returns with a timely snapshot of one of the transforming influences of the current age.
The Film will be in English, with English subtitles
