Bazaar / Tableware


`Like a bazaarŽ - that is how Eric S. Raymond described the open-source-idea.
I transfer this metapher into materiality - in shape of a set of tableware. Flat hierarchies, strength through heterogenity, flexibiltiy through a network and a close relation
from user to producer are the keys to my concept called `Slow ManufacturingŽ - a postindustrial production model between virtuality and authenticity.

Basing on three metaobjetcs – materialised as serial products in porcelain endless variantions, can be generated within a certain framework in an interactive application by the future user. Those objects are produced by the skills of crafts
