Don't run — beta

An OS compatible version within the ‘Don't run’ project. “Don't run - beta, initiated together with Juan Montero, explores the possibility of a collaborative open production line for shoe making. Rapid manufacturing machines such as laser cutters are used alongside revised and simplified assembly methods. The result is a system for prototyping/producing that is quick/economical/easy. Shoe production becomes a few specific but simple assembly steps/instructions that the consumer themselves are now and integral part of. This shift in system transfers shoe production from factory floors across the globe, to localised shop/workshop floors. With new roles the consumer/ viewer/ citizen becomes the coworker/ student/ teacher. Don't run - beta is a project developed with the collaboration of: Shoe design: Sophia Guggenberger, Anastasija Mase and Eliška Kuchtová Illustrations: Francesco Zorzi Comunication: Olivia de Gouveia“ http://eumo.it/Don-t-run-beta-2013
