Archaeologically found artefacts have taught us everything we know about past civilisations. They reveal how societies lived, worked, played, cooked and expressed themselves. Will ours do the same? What are the stories these tell?
Every Thing We Touch is a project and quest by Paula Zuccotti to capture our footprint today. She travelled the world photographing the everyday objects of friends and strangers creating individual portraits told through a single large-scale photograph of every single item a person touches in a day, in chronological order from dawn to dusk.
Paula is an artist but also a world-leading consultant in trends forecasting, consumer research, ethnography, strategy and a trained Industrial designer. Therefore as she presents her photographs, she reveals insights about our material culture and daily life that are applicable across industries from fashion to beauty to tech.
