Join “Dead Nuts: A search for the ultimate machined object” guest curator David Cole at the Museum of Craft and Design for a detailed look at a remarkable collection of machined objects and learn more about the process behind his exhibition’s unique development, design and execution. The exhibition presents around 40 objects that makers and enthusiasts proposed as “the ultimate machined object.” Some objects represent the primal building blocks of mechanization: the wheel, the lever, the screw. Others are examples of tremendous complication: a Linotype machine, an aircraft engine, a microprocessor. Between these extremes are seemingly humble objects that belie their sophistication but have revolutionized the world.
