"I was a shopper in the market on Brunnenstraße in December. You had a necklace on a gold chain. I hope you didn't sell it yet?" #objectography

Apology Kintsugi

Now the problem I've got myself into is that the popular kintsugi cult depends on repair with epoxy. Most epoxy is not food-safe. Food-safe epoxy is both extremely expensive and not, as far as I can tell, available in Italy. (But the fabulous French educator Alex has done a wonderful video about it.) Going a bit deeper I learn that Kintsugi artisans from Japan are rightfully outraged by the "cultural appropriation" of using epoxy at all.

The little "bible" in my hand turned out to be a 1953 printing of the 1923 Roget's Treasury of Words, edited by O. Sylvester Mawson, assisted by Katharine Aldrich Whiting, and subsequently retitled Roget's Pocket Thesaurus. #objectography

If we can have exactly what we want, in the size and color we want, with a small modification, a lot of our retail expenditures will fall away, as will surely some of the ability to manipulate buying preferences, and, hopefully, wasteful overproduction. #design

SLOW "seeking to do everything at the right speed"... LOCAL is about loyalty to nearby producers and appreciation... DIRECT or “relational” is about transactions without middlemen...ARTISANAL things are made with care and skill or “integrity”...SMALL BATCH is a bit more rigorous...

"I don't do something just for money reasons, but also for quality. For the thing itself. I like single components. I never use any kind of mix. I make it all by myself. I don't like the tendency in business that you can buy everything ready-made." Yes Eis Berlin #slowfood

Food is a focal point for the struggle of meaning against machine. Food's meaning comes from context, the very context which commodification destroys or conceals. #slowfood

I had recorded on background observation how well the box was managing my abuse. Then I brought that observation front and and center. I was stressing the corners of a box that had survived gracefully at least for my entire life. It deserves care, indeed it inspires care.#objectography #stewardship

"I do make pants"

"In the last 16 years we measured 5000 women. From that research we found many new results...Why does the body work like this? What does the body do about walking?...The pants show the body. It should be a nice picture and painting. We want to make that possible. That was our purpose. We've never been satisfied by anything that is half."

Chad Robertson is the bread baker at Tartine, San Francisco. He makes the most beautiful bread he can, because he wants to. He doesn’t try to make too much of it. (Just 175 loaves a day, which sell out in an hour.) He’s analytical, thoughtful, directed, probably brilliant. Reprint of article from San Francisco Magazine (defunct). #artisan #slowfood @tartinebakery

Shopping involved certain gestures, discreetly fingering the fabric, deftly flipping a garment open to see how it was sewn, to examine the quality of the lining. Objects were promptly upended to see the quality of workmanship and to search for manufacturers’ engravings. If she couldn’t lift and turn an object of interest with one hand, she’d give me the nod, and I would turn it upside down for her examination. #objectography

I did other jobs, but I always wanted to sew, since I was little cutting up the bedspreads. Finally my husband and I decided it was time for me to do what I really love. This shop supports itself, but it's not contributing to the family, so we think of it as our Fiji. It's right here. @muttilovecph #artisan

Around the world is a crisis of modernization in which younger generations do not want to inherit the farming and other artisanal work of their families. When farms and value-added productions are closed, we lose not only the quality, but also the knowledge of ecology, technique, tradition, and sustainable technology carried for generations. #localfood #slowfood

As a philosopher, young Karl Marx learned that work was an aspect of being human. He became an economist in fury that work was being systematically torn from our personhood to serve industries. His intellectual and political inheritors have mostly sought to limit this incursion, to protect the person from the world of work. Which wasn't quite the point.
