futurprimitiv is an initiative founded in 2018 by Evey Kwong.
Evey is a designer crafts practitioner and tutor, exploring in a cultural, social and artistic approach to unfold the value for tradition and the process of making. Her artistic work and research connects with artisans, ethnographers, and makers evolving around the themes of craft-based technologies, intuitive learning with local materials and context.
Her background in design and digitisation has brought her closer to the need of finding new meaning by sharing real stories and knowledge with real people. What does it mean today to be close to nature and to be working manually with hands? How do we address the current consumption crisis and transform our lavish into a sustainable lifestyle? How do we foster creativity outside of the conventional didactic educational system?
Combining her researches, she develops experimental teaching formats to inspire people to take action. Learn-Practice-Teach.
She is currently based in Berlin and travels around the world to learn and document forgotten crafts and cultures.
She is available for crafts revivalism projects and teaching commissions.
