FROM CONSUMER TO MAKER
Consumerism refers to economic policies, placing emphasis on mindless consumption rather than creation. Branchworks is a social interaction project which uses a stool to transform consumers into makers. The consumers are led through three steps, each intended to invoke curiosity and guide them to an intimate meeting with the designer. A workshop that teaches the prospecting makers two separate techniques that are simple and easy. Woodcarving and a method of connection that can be used to fix, fabricate or embellish using tree branches.
