The live hacking and making lab was installed in the basement of the Rinascente department store which overlooks the Doumo in the heart of Milan, for the duration of the Milan Design Week.

“Hacked Lab was an experimental programme of live activities, events, installations, performances and workshops curated by Beatrice Galilee. The project includes temporary site-specific works by artists, architects and designers; a vast hack of la Rinascente’s colonnaded facade by Carmody Groarke, a flexible, movable stage by EXYZT and – very briefly – a scale-model of the Large Hadron Collider. The Hacked Lab programme is intended to provide a platform for young designers whose work exists outside of conventional exhibition-object parameters and crosses various disciplines.”

My visit was on the morning of the 18th when Technology Will Save Us were running their Thirsty Plant workshop.

All those involved in the project:
