In the Spring of 2018, I visited several makerspaces and workshop in Sydney and spoke with the makers, students, and technicians working within them. These conversations focused on the machines, tools and materials available to use as well as the kinds of waste materials that are generated during the making process. To create these chairs, I collected multiple different types of waste including plywood off cuts, failed PLA 3D prints, and acrylic laser cutter remnants and used them to prototype some basic chair forms.
