send us a tool!

We want to know about your favorite tool! We are inviting designers, artists, scientists, and citizens from around the world to submit a tool to add to the collection, Tools of/for/from The Anthropocene. These tools together will tell stories of working in our changing environments, modes of practice, and metrics of climate. The Anthropocene is an acknowledgement of a complex and integrated relationship between humans and our natural environment. In the same way, this tool collection is meant to expand upon this complexity and overlap in fields of climate science, urban design, art, product development, and contemporary life.

What can I submit? The tools can span from historical to contemporary, from analogue to digital, from rural to urban, for use in the lab or the field. They can be objects of daily life, or specialized tools of the trade. We define a tool broadly; we are in search of technologies, objects, and metrics you use in your practice or life (everyday items, digital tech, maps, wearables, devices). 

Deadline for Submissions: August 31, 2016
