Session Abstract

Lars Zimmermann and Michi Muchina, OpenCircularity

Modularity is a key to a more sustainable world of products and consumption. This workshop will introduce two interesting concepts about “modularity for sustainable circularity”. We will discuss “Pre-Use” and “Hacking Modularity”. Pre-Use means to use something for something different than it was intended for but in a way that it still works for the initially intended use afterwards. Hacking Modularity points to the idea that the majority of things around us aren’t modular but approaching things like a hacker can change that at least for some things. After a quick theoretical introduction to these concepts participants will build quick own own statues and hacks at the conference venue using pre-use-techniques.
