Anthropological Studies of Organisms and Artefacts. Edited by Elizabeth Hallam, University of Aberdeen and University of Oxford, UK and Tim Ingold, University of Aberdeen, UK.
Series : Anthropological Studies of Creativity and Perception
Making and Growing brings together the latest work in the fields of anthropology and material culture studies to explore the differences - and the relation - between making things and growing things, and between things that are made and things that grow. Though the former are often regarded as artefacts and the latter as organisms, the book calls this distinction into question, examining the implications for our understanding of materials, design and creativity.
