Makeshift Magazine Issue 8 is available now on loremnotipsum.com. Incorporating sources of inspiration is important for any creative work, yet we tend to clutch onto our ideas as intellectual property. When shared and incorporated with care, our ideas can impact the world in ways we never anticipated. A vendor in Mexico City sells rare, pirated art-house films. And movie pirates in Lagos have become unlikely distribution partners for filmmakers in a synergistic, though not necessarily balanced, relationship. Not everyone benefits when we copy overtly, but given advancements in duplicative technologies like 3D printing, few are safe from remix culture, and those learn to who work with it will survive the digital shake-up.

Makeshift Magazine is a quarterly print publication about creativity in unlikely places, from the favelas of Rio to the alleys of Delhi. These are environments where resources may be scarce, but where ingenuity is used incessantly for survival, enterprise, and a self-expression. Makeshift believes in an industrial future fueled by networks of makers, from roadside engineers to co-working creatives. The magazine is documenting a movement of hackers, sharers, and entrepreneurs innovating under resource constraints. It is about people, the things they make, and the context they make them in.
