About the Future of Fixing Exhibition
The Future of Fixing was originally curated by Daniel Charny/ From-Now-On for the Łódź Design Festival in Poland in 2014 under the auspices of Brave Fixed World, where it was shown as part of the British Council’s Maker Library Network. The exhibition has now made “open source” and a version of the show Marilyn Zapf and expanded for display at CCCD.

Fixperts and KYOTO Design Lab
Fixperts co-founder Professor Daniel Charny of Kingston University ran a workshop at KIT in February 2015 on the theme of Making and Materials.
Following the workshop, KIT’s third year product design students took up the theme of ‘Invisible People’ – the maintenance, security, and cleaning staff on KIT’s campus that keep it in running order but whose working lives could be made easier with a little design help. In 2016, the focus was ‘Silver Workers’, those working long beyond the official retirement age.
The aim of the project has been to help students understand how to find design opportunities in what appear to be unpromising contexts, where small design interventions can have an enormous beneficial effect. The students had to uncover those opportunities, learn basic ethnography and work directly with those invisible people who could benefit from their design expertise. Importantly, they had to communicate the design process in its complexity and how they arrived at their final design ideas in a four-minute video that told the story of their creative journey.
