We are no longer old-fashioned.
We hereby renounce the choices imposed on us and instead call into question the common assumptions that have been made and remade.
We withdraw from this reality.
We will #make our own narratives.
We will #make our own futures.
THX.OBJ embodies the contradictions between 3D printing and a market where #making is the new consuming. Taking inspiration from an everyday object - a plastic shopping bag that says "Thank You for Shopping Here" - THX.OBJ is an intermediate that expresses our uncertainties toward the mass commercialisation of once emerging rapid fabrication technologies.
While we recognise the potential and benefits to this mode of production, this tech also makes us feel #uncertain. We question our ability to move beyond technodeterminist impulses and the endless speculations about the interplay between making the new "new” and making new "new” markets.
TNX.OBJ reflects on and about the commodification of DIY practices to #make new "business models".
