“In 1828 … [t]he Faust legend obsessed artists and writers; in dozens of works they told the story of the modern predicament: in gaining the power of industry, the world was sacrificing it’s soul. It was not the new machines themselves they feared – there were not yet many – it was machine thinking.”
Jonathan Hale, The Old Way of Seeing
Normally residing in Northern California, I’m currently living in Paris until the Fall of 2018. I have a background in tech industry but my passion is trying to unravel and understand how we got to where we are now. The lens I choose to look through is our machines.
I am not an expert in History or making things. The material I make is the story of my journey fumbling through all of this. While the research I do or things I make are primarily for my own satisfaction, bringing you along adds another dimension and purpose to my discovery.
I hope you’ll join with me as I find and discover more.
