The Tarot of maker is one of the 8 projects that have been selected to be developed during Interactivos?’15: Material Cultures in the Digital Age, that will be carried out from December 2 to 16, 2015.
The workshop is complete with a series of conferences and meetings.
The Tarot of Maker is open to collaborators of almost any field. In particular we welcome makers, philosophers, illustrators, graphic designers, ecologists, sociologists, psychologists, coders, poets, translators and in general all the people interested in debating and creating a manifesto of good practice about digital fabrication and the maker movement and then generate a deck of Tarot cards.
The proposal will be mainly developed intellectually through the collaboration of all the people interested in the topic.
Then according to the skills of collaborators, we can produce different results:
a) the prototype of a physical deck, preferably made of recycled materials (i.e.: wood sheets, cutted and engraved with symbols).
b) a wiki or a git of the project by which to develop the project in the future.
A third of the time will be devoted to the creation of the manifesto, another third to the graphic design of the symbols and the choice of the materials.
The remaining time to the creation of a prototype of the deck of cards.
