dc.description.abstract Craft practice has in recent years been largely absent from contemporary dialogues within art and design. By highlighting the virtuosity of hand skills the work draws attention to the importance of understanding the role of experiential and embodied knowledge within creative practice and suggests a reconsideration of the role of craft skill within contemporary art and design practice. The work sought to examine the serial and repetitive nature of textile practice (knitting, weaving and beading) by utilizing the notion of the double. Three singular objects: a set of toy blocks, a ball of commercially produced string and a length of beaded string are all produced by hand in exact duplicate. The intention of the series of works was to examine the ability of the human hand to mimic the aesthetics of machine production, drawing attention to the adaptability of the processual and embodied knowledge at play in creative activities. The body of work was selected to be exhibited at MOP on the basis of a peer assessed written proposal. The project was also funded by a Janet Holmes à Court Artists' Grant Scheme (supported through a donation by Mrs Janet Holmes à Court, financial assistance from the Visual Arts Board of the Australia Council and administered through NAVA, the National Association for the Visual Arts). Curator Daniel Mudie Cunningham wrote a critical commentary to accompany the exhibition of work, titled Todd Robinson, 'Things in the World'.
