Dead Nuts

Museum of Craft and Design

Curated by David Cole, this exhibition presents objects that makers and enthusiasts proposed as "the ultimate machined object." Some 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.

This is what SF/Arts curator Christian L. Frock has to say about Dead Nuts :

Before there was elegance in code, there was precision in machined objects – and this exhibition aims to consider our our sense of elegance in the hand-forged. The small online community behind Practical Machinist has debated excellence in this arena and this exhibition presents a sampling of what they’ve considered “the ultimate machined objects,” ranging from a wheel to an aircraft engine.
