The Toaster Project

Thomas Thwaites (UK)
Honorary Mention Hybrid Art

The Toaster Project is the result of the attempt to make an electric toaster from scratch – literally from the ground up. Starting with digging up the raw materials from abandoned mines around the UK, processing them at home, and finally forming them into a product that can be bought for just £ 3.94. The toaster cost £ 1187.54, took nine months to finish and exposes the fallacy in a return to some romantic ideal of a pre-industrialized time.
