Bin Bag Bear

Yael Mer & Shay Alkalay from Raw-Edges Design Studio.

»A simple employee at the council rubbish disposal services had a peculiar imagination: he could see teddy bears in every object he observed. As a child he would stare at the clouds imagining that he could see teddy bears in the sky… and today… everywhere, even the black bin bags looked like teddy bears to him. No one at work could stand his excited cries every time he shouted „look at that bear… look at that one… don’t throw it into the garbage crusher… nooooo!“ Of course he was fired from his job, lost his family and friends and became homeless. Yet even though many people thought he was strange, none of them would admit that they too saw the teddy bear bin bags dumped around the streets of London.«

Die Mitmach-Revolution

Kaufst du noch oder druckst du schon? Noch geht unsere Vorstellung nicht soweit, dass wir ahnen können, was uns 3D-Drucker zukünftig ermöglichen werden. Womöglich könnten sie die Weltmärkte verändern, sie gar revolutionieren. Die Digitalisierung, die der Film- und Musikindustrie das Fürchten gelehrt hat, weitet sich auf die gegenständliche Welt aus. Kleider, skulpturale Kunst, das Brillengestell – alles, was denkbar ist, ist machbar, und alles was machbar ist, passiert. Den mentalen Einstieg in die neue Volksdroge bekommt ihr hier: »Das kleine Schwarze aus dem 3D-Drucker«. Jetzt nur noch ein paar Jahre warten, bis die Technologie den Konsumer-Markt erreicht.
