EXHIBITION: Connections

The Connections project seeks to engage a community of makers, from traditional to digital, embracing new methods of making. This group originally coalesced around the Benchspace Open Source PPE response over the early months of covid-19 outbreak in Ireland, many of whom have never met in person. To mark the project, members of the group have again collaborated to design and build a structure around themes of loss, achievement, and future connections. The project culminates with participants meeting finally to assemble the structure on site in the courtyard of Backwater where it will remain for the week.

Benchspace is a creative hub in Cork City. It was established to provide affordable access to workbenches and professional standard machinery to hobbyists, learners, makers and designers.
