Making Do and Getting By investigates the process of perception and communication – how we see what we see, what we do with what we see, how we name what we think we have seen, who we share it with and who is speaking to whom.

Beyond this, it documents an excess – a creativity beyond necessary functionality, something transformative that lurks below the surface intention in acts of ordering and repair.

In this ongoing series of photographs taken on his daily trajectories, celebrated British artist, Richard Wentworth frames with a light and witty touch the art of the human hand.

This unique artist’s book features an interview with Richard Wentworth by curator, Hans Ulrich Obrist.
