My final masters project at the RCA will focus on my main interest, and the area of my dissertation.

This project is inspired by the maker community, people who are hacking, tinkering and constructing their own DIY kits and projects to produce useful, bespoke or repaired items for fun and learning. These people have an open and liberal approach to sharing their work.

Over the course of the next two months I am running a series of workshops to kickstart a community effort to build a open source vacuum cleaner, the vacuum cleaner will be designed to be home manufactured using, where possible standard, easily obtainable parts.

I will be running a series of workshops to kick-start the process of creating a community around this object.
