Temple of Manufacturing

Company’s installation at the Storefront gallery in New York features a series of materials, drawings, and objects created in collaboration with local makers.

Temple of Manufacturing
Temple of Manufacturing is an installation that transforms the Storefront gallery into a sacred space with a series of in situ frescoes and materials, drawings, and objects, as well as new composite objects created in collaboration with local makers they encountered in their travels.


Temple of Manufacturing presents Company’s long-term project: Secrets. Traveling to remote sites around the world to learn crafting processes unique to particular industries and places, the duo (comprised of Aamu Song and Johan Olin) has collaborated over the last decade with a variety of communities to rethink the very processes and knowledge embedded in these places. Applying this knowledge to new and unexpected designs, Company’s work creates an intersection between the mastery of traditional technique and the invention of a new, poetic, and personal material and object-specific vocabulary.
