For me this project revolved around making, craft and fighting against the loss of knowledge. In the age of mass production I see less characteristics in our daily tools and objects, I wonder how this affects our imagination. 

As Robert McLiam Wilson writes, in the introduction Wild at Heart for WilderMann,

Plugged in, neurotically wi-fied and G3d as we are, we yearn to re-establish contact with the actual, the primal, the old. We dream of something real, something unmitigated by the filter of profit-making portals and franchises. We want the as-was, the erstwhile. We languish for the non-mechanical and the pre- or post-industrial. We are pilgrims seeking the past, the genuine, the individual.’

I believe we will find this genuine and individual part in the act of making / producing.
