Tools are the key to understanding humanity. As a society develops, so too does its use of tools. We’re wholly dependent on them, and use them from each moment to the next. Whether you’re popping in a nail, stitching up a hole, or just tightening a few bolts, thousands of years of human evolution has gone into what you’re holding. Tools have been a vital part of this human experience.
Analogue Production is an exhibition that displays not the result of manufacture, but the means of manufacture. Borrowed from craft and design practitioners, private and public collections, this exhibition displays an array of tools used for production including items that are ubiquitous, historical and obscure.
