Hacking Source


Hacking Source is a side-project of Source, an annual exhibition that since 2012 selects and follows the work of Italian and international designers with the aim of helping them approaching production, marketing and sales. Source has grown to become a permanent project and offers education, services and professional consultation all the year round, in Florence and other Italian cities on the theme of design and self-production.


In 2016 with Hacking Source, born from an idea of Giacomo Garziano, Annika Kappner and Margarita Osipian, Source wants merge design with other disciplines to create an interdisciplinary approach that gives birth to new ideas, collaborations, and ways of seeing.
For one week Hacking Source will host a different personalities will engaging in a brainstorm encounter with participants. The first encounter will involve a topic chosen by the host. After the conclusion of the first brain storm session, host A will pass on the results and ideas to the host of the second session (host B). Based on this input, host B will continue the first conversation but through the lens of their own research. This chain-like process will continue with each host, creating a generative brainstorming structure. At the end of the process, the problems will be presented during a children’s workshop, giving children the opportunity to come up with their own approaches. The ideas being developed will be published in a zine during the course of the fair, with brainstorm notes and drawings.
