La Coopérative Pointcarré, Saint-Denis - France
"La Coopérative Poincarré" Solidarity FabLab, Saint-Denis (France) Artists and young people in civic service offered a new take on artistic production processes by turning a digital cutting plotter into a drawing machine. The original drawing is vectorised and reproduced in small batches, achieving an aesthetic that is designed by the artist but specific to the machine. The result? Pieces that are original and widely affordable. Reinventing design and the human-machine relationship with digital devices that are more creative, faster and cheaper: just one of the exciting adventures made possible by digital art. The project might be extended to wood engraving, creating designs on fabrics... and online sales.

Vote for the third Solidarity FabLab challenge!
Since 2015, we have offered free training in our Solidarity FabLabs to young people leading difficult lives. In the FabLabs they learn digital manufacturing, teamwork and perhaps a future trade. Our international challenge is aimed at them. It allows them to use our FabLabs to develop a project from A to Z and show everything they are capable of doing today. This year, it is all about using digital technology to devise and produce creations for the worlds of fashion, design and the arts.
