A project to support local crafts

Field Experiments is a nomadic design collective that uses collaborative making to explore diverse cultures and craft communities in different regions around the world. Field Experiments Indonesia resulted in the making of more than 100 conceptual objects that challenge the traditional notion of the souvenir. It explored the re-assemblage of cultural craft objects in a tourist-driven economy and examined the influence of transnational exchange in the making process, proposing how a souvenir can manifest and encourage cross-cultural learning and understanding.
