One of the greatest values street makers have is creating objects using random resources available. Luckily, this often results in serendipitous outcomes. However, we, as designers are often very conscious about our design decisions that we often lose this simpler spontaneous way of making things.
Over the past year, I have dedicated my research and exploration to the field of street creativity and frugal innovation. “13 Fixes in 13 Days” is an experimental exercise I have carried out that requires one to loosen up their designers’ identity and instead work on their makers’ identity. It focuses on the genuity of the process rather than the final product or its aesthetics.
