Inspired by apocalyptic scenarios (in films) where survivors imaginatively put together essential products by foraging for things around them from ground zero, Forager Things presents two collections of objects that encourages us to recondition our perspectives towards mass produced items — considering a possible future where society has to relearn how to build and connect through analogue means. Publication includes detailed diagrams, instructions, and a sheet with QR code links to demonstration videos.
