Konkurs za idejno rešenje dizajna proizvoda od reciklažne plastikeBeograd24/12/2018@10hMeetings/ResearchSelf-fundedMinipogon
Izazov u 3E dizajnu (3E=Ekologija+Ekonomija+Etika)
Minipogon / 24.12.2018. – 01.03.2019.

Poziv je upućen mladim dizajnerima koji bi želeli da se svojim idejama uključe u razvijanje dostupnih tehnologija obrade reciklažne plastike koju od 2017. godine razvijamo i unapređujemo u okviru Minipogona, po principima Precious Plastic–a (Eindhoven, Holandija).
Primenjujući tri važna principa pri dizajniranju proizvoda - ekološki, ekonomski i etički - idejno rešenje treba da reflektuje društvenu i ekološku odgovornost u smislu da predmet izrađen od reciklažne plastike, uz minimizirane troškove proizvodnje treba da poseduje visoku upotrebnu i/ili simboličku vrednost, što će omogućiti njegov duži vek trajanja (u odnosu na onaj koji je plastičnim proizvodima uobičajeno namenjen).

Za tri izabrana idejna rešenja biće realizovani kalupi u aluminijumu i izrađena serija proizvoda. Radovi će biti predstavljeni na izložbi u Maloj galeriji primenjenih umetnosti u Uzun Mirkovoj u toku 2019. god. Autorima će slediti serija proizvoda i u slučaju moguće komercijalizacije dogovoreni procenat od prodaje.

Quest for recatgular tubes on the Scrapyard Sek-Si scrapyard in Žarkovo23/12/2018@00hPlastic ResourcesSelf-fundedminipogonWe were asked to cast a cube from PET plastic which matched with our intentions to do some tests with PET on the extruder. For casting the cube we first have to make the iron mould. And for this we tried to find a piece of rectangular iron tube 13x13cm. As none of the sellers wanted to sell us less than a whole bar of 6m, we directed ourselves to the scrapyard. We found nothing similar there, but it was an interesting adventure.1262

Visiting the refugee camp in KikindaKikinda, Serbia07/08/2018@12hMeetings/ResearchminipogonToday we have visited refugee camp in Kikinda which is located in Vojvodina, two and a half hour driving from Belgrade. The camp is completely isolated and dislocated from urban areas and it does not have access to potable water. People living there are using only bottled water and a lot of plastic waste is produced which does not get recycled. 1113

Visiting the refugee camp in KikindaKikinda, Serbia07/08/2018@12hMeetings/ResearchminipogonWe discussed a possibility of organizing at least some part of workshops in Kikinda refugee camp. The camp is inhabited mostly by families who are asylum seekers and are detained for a longer time in Serbia, even for more years. We had impression that there is not many activities that are organized there and kids possibly would be interested to involve in our working process..1114

fixing the motor to the structurePraxa / Makerspace31/01/2018@00hBuilding ShredderminipogonMarko, who is engineer helped us to fix the motor to the structure. This was the most delicate part that we had to solve because we opted for a rigid connection between the motor (reductor) and the shredder, that was a bit risky. Also we had to solve the problem how to drill the holes in the metal structure that were too close to the welding edges, but everything went well.1020

Mesh no.1Praxa / Makerspace29/01/2018@00hBuilding ShredderminipogonFor making mesh we need perforated metal sheet 1.5mm thick. Problem is that in Jeep our usual supplier such sheets could be purchased only as entire laminate of 200x120cm, that costs more than 3.500RSD. We found a smaller piece with scrap, but with smaller perforation and bought it for 200RSD. Before welding it has to be cut and folded.1018
