Introducing the latest addition to our 7th Gen Design workshop stream, 7th Gen Tech Design with Blender! In this workshop participants were prompted to imagine Indigenous technologies from the future! What are the gadgets, wearables, or devices that our future relatives will be using in 7 generations? Participants started by responding to these questions with a few iterative sketches. Next, they were taught the basics of hard surface modeling via the free, and open source 3D software Blender. Once their technologies were modeled and textured, participants were then shown how to upload their creations to Second Life, in order to see their technologies in the context of a “real life” virtual world! This workshop was a blast to teach, and we look forward to running more like it in the future!
