In 2019 one of Alterfact Studio’s designs was copied by Target USA. This workshop questions the originality of designed objects, and their aura, in the age of intellectual property and mechanical reproduction which shapes life as much as design itself.

At Proof participants join an experience where they handmake an original clay ‘positive’, which is scanned and printed on clay 3d printers. Participants keep the first print (the ‘proof’) and name the shape in exchange for giving Alterfact the intellectual property of the design, and permission to reproduce it ad infinitum. The original positive is ceremoniously destroyed.
