Matthew Harkness’ exhibition _Bioplastic Futures: 3D Printing and the Maker Movement _addresses issues of waste, exclusivity, and exploitation in maker practices.
Through speculative design and critical making experiments, Matthew Harkness contends with the problems surrounding 3D printing’s maker culture and environmental implications.
