Hello, and welcome back to Looking Sideways. I took a long hiatus after the first series, but now I’m back with a new series of interviews focusing on making.
In this series, I set out to explore the world of making from the individual craftsperson, to the mass manufacture of products. I wanted to understand the value of making by hand when the global systems of manufacture cater to our needs so efficiently. Why do we consider the hackspace tinkerer a maker, but not the assembler of iPhones? Is handcraft just nostalgia, or can it point towards a different kind of future?
The episode here is just a test. The first episode will be broadcast on Resonance 104.4 FM on Sunday 21 February.
