My interest in Fabricademy¶
During the summer of 2023, I attended the Fabricademy Bootcamp in and around Jordan. It so happened to be at the same time I was searching for an outlet for research and creativity. Throughout the Bootcamp, I could envision the research, topics of interests, and projects I could achieve with all the knowledge and added skills.
In the past year, I have been collaborating with designers and makers and working on commissioned installations. Through the skills I will acquire from the differnet weeks, I hope to continue in this path while developing more well-rounded personal projects.
At the end of the Fabricademy Bootcamp, we worked on a 2-day final project in groups using one to two of the topics introduced to us in the 8 days. Below is the result of our group:
