Enter the labyrinth of ideas
Thanks to Makery for finding these kind words.
It was a pleasure hosting you and our first Rewilding Cultures / feralAIRs (to be continued in 2023)
For the past 20 years, Schmiede has been gathering coders, biohackers, dancers, composers, filmmakers, game designers, neuroscientists, philosophers and writers in the Old Saline of Hallein in Austria. Ten days of wild encounters, brainstormings and collaborative prototyping that culminate in an extravagant group exhibition.
As the closing event of the summer in the maker camp community, Schmiede has been held since 2003 in the small town of Hallein, near Salzburg. Literally, ein schmied is a blacksmith (hence the participants are called Smiths), but what is forged at Schmiede is first and foremost a philosophy. It’s a mindset that calls for openness and collaboration among various disciplines, between creativity and entrepreneurship, between theory and turning thoughts into action.
… much and many details 🙂 … and thank you again for the kind words.
Indeed, Schmiede is an escape in time, a magical moment suspended in an amazing, unforgettable space – hidden, almost secret, in the heart of rural Austria, but that leaves traces, like the stored salt, and images that stay with you long after you leave.
