Make Hack Void is a community hackerspace situated in Downer, in their own words they are:
"...people with extremely diverse interests. Fibreglass moulds to FPGA electronics, Arduinos to DIY pizza ovens. Plus lots more. We're all interested in making things, hacking on projects, and we're not afraid of voiding warranties if we have to.
...members can come to work on their projects, get access to tools and expertise, and meet like-minded people."
Make Hack Void was my first point of contact for inspiration regarding hackers. While I though I was looking for subversive but positive hacking activities, I found a high level of community engagement and open source ideals, both in the open nature of the space and the people, and in their practices.
Inspired by the diverse nature of their projects and the genuine passion for creation I realised that this space represented the direction I wanted to take my design and approach to fashion.
