Every Thing We Touch

Found artefacts from history have taught us a lot of what we know about past civilisations. They reveal how societies lived, worked, played, cooked, and expressed themselves. Will ours do the same? What stories do our “things” tell?

Every Thing We Touch is Paula Zuccotti’s voyage to making sense of today’s things. She travelled the world photographing everyday objects, creating unique portraits 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 the fields of trends forecasting, consumer research, ethnography, and strategy. She is also a trained industrial designer. Therefore, as she presents her photographs, she reveals insights about our material culture and daily life that can be applied in all industries, from fashion to tech.

We have also summarised this episode on our blog.
