We support fine art through 3d printing and other means. If you don't understand art its no problem, if you don't understand technology you are a jerk.
The open lab is available 24/7, we have all the equipment needed to support everyone's project. If we don't have the machines you need, we will find a way to access them. The main focus is to give technological access to artists and designers. We have the knowledge and technology to teach all interested folks how to solve their problems. Also there is an IT infrastructure to get things made from inside and outside the lab with no own computing power. Further we foster cooperation with other labs and institutions.
The main fields of our activities are knowledge sharing, providing infrastructure, art and culture, urban development, educational programs, and start-up support. Our focus in technology is on open software and open hardware use and development. The focus of our social interaction is to explore new ways to work and live together. We test out peer-to-peer networking and clustering of competence.
There are no limitations to access and use the lab. As we try to lower the hurdles to get started with any project, there are no initial fees or applications. Just join and get things made.
