“We are living in strange times indeed; evil clowns prowl the streets, lurk in dark alleys and lead our governments.  Yet, I’m convinced that we have an opportunity, right now, to make a change.  Combinations of 3D Printing, Hackerspaces, the Maker Movement and Upcycling provide the tools, locations, partnerships and motivation to create an alternative economy.  As we stand on the precipice of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, we have an opportunity to move beyond simple (and sometimes deceptive) Sustainable Design, towards genuinely holistic Regenerative Development.      Together, we can do it.” 

 

Samantha Sherer is a Registered Psychotherapist and a Master of Design candidate at OCADU.  Her interdisciplinary career in arts-based psychotherapy, studio ceramics and development work with artisans has led Samantha to investigate the intersection between Design and Community health. Her practice led research includes assembling an open source Ceramic 3D printing system to serve as appropriate technology for the Maker Movement.  She is intent on sowing open source Additive Manufacturing technology in the Global North and fostering its transplantation to the Global South, so that it will seed community and stimulate Regenerative Development.
