Our experiences of the world are shaped by vast networks of people, things and interactions. The networks of production are made up of millions of peoples' knowledge, skills and labour that we never see; networks we are largely removed from up until the act of consumption.

I have been exploring the potential of facilitating situations that require smaller, more localised networks of sharing and co-operation to reach a goal. These interdependent events shift value away from packaged experience, to help us value the process of working, playing and making together.
