MUTATE – Materials Under Transition And Technical Exploration
JamFactory Associates recently undertook a new collaborative project called Mutate.
Mutate provided an opportunity for Associates to work with and learn from fellow associates in the four main studios, allowing experimentation and exploration with new materials and techniques.
In groups of 2 or 3 Associates worked together to design a functional item, working from ideas and sketches to a final prototype in a very short timeframe. The results were then presented and critiqued providing valuable feedback on design concepts, use of materials and working as a team.
The project is the first is a series of cross-studio collaborative projects aimed at expanding and enriching the Associate experience
