I’ve finished my “Lessons from the Lost Museum” book manuscript and I’m starting to think about a new project. I’ve gotten in the habit of writing and may as well keep at it!
The new project is about making and technical skill. Not sure how to frame it, or what the end product might be. I’ll teach a class on this in the fall to think it through.
I know that part of it will be actually making things. Here’s a first attempt at thinking about making: “Just measure, cut and bolt together.” What can we learn about skills by looking closely at our process of learning-while-making?
