Live Flash Factories | Design Junction

 

Live Flash Factories | Design Junction.

‘Provenance is a huge watchword in design right now. Where and how objects are produced and their impact on the environment is increasingly important to the design community and the general public alike. That’s why the ground floor of designjunction will play host to a series of Flash Factories this year. These interactive mini factories will offer visitors the unique opportunity get up close and see the various stages of how products are made, before they hit the shop or showrooms’

Have we really moved on from the image above ? Is this image really showing static production  – or an illusion of it that webought into…?

it is interesting that social flexability is  really becoming visible now in modes of production … Not just consumption.
