“If you look at how things used to be done and still are done. it’s like this: it’s top-down, it’s centralised, it’s each segment by each segment and you don't communicate. This is the industrialised way of doing everything.”Jan Åman is an entrepreneur, curator, writer and activist specialising in the intersection between cities, buildings, food, art and societal development. He spoke about ‘The Village as the Societal Innovation Engine’ at MTF Labs in Aveiro.#systemdesign #culture #frameworks #ecosystems #MTFLabs #mtfaveiro #innovation #cities ... See MoreSee Less

“Scale helps to organise experience. It’s a way of taking these things that we can't always touch and feel - like orientation or weather or time - and helps to organise them in ways that allow us to share that. For instance, if I ask you “what’s the temperature outside?” and you say “it’s cold”. Your cold may not be my cold. You might only need a sweater. I might need a parka and so “cold” doesn't really quite do it. But if I said “it’s zero degrees centigrade” then we have an absolute and shared kind of cultural framework for understanding what that temperature is.” Jamer Hunt is professor and founding director of Transdisciplinary Design at Parsons School of Design in New York and the author of Not to Scale: How the Small Becomes Large, the Large Becomes Unthinkable, and the Unthinkable Becomes Possible (2020), a book that repositions scale as a practice-based framework for navigating social change in complex systems. Watch his inspiring presentation at our recent MTF Labs in Aveiro. [buff.ly/3tKGZps](buff.ly/3tKGZps)#systemdesign #scale #culture #frameworks #ecosystems #MTFLabs #mtfaveiro ... See MoreSee Less

New instrument in progress for The Beating Birch. This will have a mix of analog and digital sound making and sending. Both an installation and performance instrument. Come play with it at @hackoustic on the 17th!

“Scale not only creates culture, but it helps to organise experience into something knowable - that we can really put our finger on.” - @jamerhunt, author of Not to Scale and Professor of Transdisciplinary Design at Parsons speaking at MTF Labs in Aveiro. https://vimeo.com/762301116

Here at #MTFlabs, we are all about people – and together, we can map out new systems according to the values we want to create #MTFAveiro

Terhi Marttila shares how MTF Labs inspired her to learn to code and develop one of her first works “give me a reason” where she combines poetry and computation. One of her interests is the exploration of Migration as movement.
