Title: You, Me and the Comachines
Member of design collective ON/OFF, Nick Green will present recent projects from the group and introduce their latest explorations with ‘Comachines’. These range from DIY devices to larger scale mobile installations and work as collaborative tools to engender new, temporary relationships with the cities we live in. The talk will explore authorship and use and will consider the potential for an architecture of immediacy.
