Fabrica 2021, trial period




What is the relationship between time and creating? If it is true that time dictates the way we produce and consume in a capitalist world, how issues such as time, speed and labor apply to craft instead? What is the identity of artists and makers in a digital age?

This reflection is materialised through a temporized making of mugs. The project is inspired by assembly line footages of a ceramic factory and this quote:

Recently I met a group of skilled artisans from the Kohler porcelain plant in Wisconsin. To this day, each of the commodes coming out of the plant is hand-finished. [...]. Hitting a daily quota of hand-finished toilets is not what normally springs to mind when we speak of craft. But there was no doubt in my mind, as I spoke with these industrial makers, that they were craftsmen through and through”.
