Dr. Garnet Hertz is Canada Research Chair in Design and Media Arts and is Associate Professor in the Faculty of Design and Dynamic Media at Emily Carr University. His art and research investigate DIY culture, electronic art, and critical design practice. He has researched Critical Making for more than a decade.
He presents projects and ideas representing critical making and thoughts on the state-of-the-art, how the term came to be and what it is today. The session addresses the future of the term, how it can be extended to be used to describe grassroots communities’ practices around the world that already think critically and use technology critically and responsibly: in critical technical practices, social innovation, activism and societal critique, as well as DIY as counterculture.

In the Critical Making project, we want to add scientific insights into the potentials of the maker movement for critical, socially responsible making, and show how these communities can offer new opportunities for young makers of all genders to contribute to an open society via open source innovation. During our kick-off Interactive Workshop: Exploring Critical Making on 25th March 2021, we hosted a conversation with experts of experimental research approaches and makers on how they are using new, different, hands-on research methods to shape the maker community in a more inclusive. Viewers of the livestream used a public Miro board (https://miro.com/app/board/o9J_lOhsQoQ=/) for comments and questions.
