In a 3D printed spectrogram, American physicist and computer scientist Neil Gershenfeld gives his definition of what a FabLab is.
Gershenfeld is professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and has created the concept of Fablabs. The spectrogram with Gershenfeld’s voice was created by Artist and founding member of the Toulouse FabLab Artilect, Gilles Azzaro. The artwork was specifically printed for the opening of Artilect Lab, an expansion of the current FabLab in Toulouse.
“FabLabs are a global network of local labs that are democratizing access to digital fabrications allowing anyone to make almost anything. With the technical goal of FabLabs making FabLabs, together they are asking and answering how we will live, learn, work and play in a world where data can become things and things can become data.”
