Space / Gather / Make!
Tate Exchange, Tate Modern
London, 2017

Space / Gather / Make! was a mini - exhibit at Tate Modern that emerged in collaboration with Tate Digital Learning and the Journal of Peer Production for Art:Work. The exhibit highlighted the diverse experiences of the users of shared machine shops, or open workshops where people make and learn with technical tools. We worked with makerspaces, fab labs and other kinds of shared machine shops across the world from Japan to Ghana, asking them what worker-owned labour looked and sounded like in their spaces, offering participatory activites that explored their personal experiences of digital labour. The exhibit also featured an audio installation which was compiled from recordings gathered across the featured spaces by sound artist Vasilis Moschas. Combining machine-produced audio recordings, beats and spoken-word poetry, its chapters illustrated typical makerspace experiences of flow, discontinuity, repair and breakdown. Photos: Tate Exchange, Sam Meech.
