The Makers of Things – No. 2 The Problem Solver

Published on July 7, 2013

The Problem Solver
Mike Kapp lives in a peaceful cul-desac, quietly shaping his house into a system of his invention. Cat-flaps, clocks and ghostly machines are the fruits of a lifetime of problem solving and inquiry. His experience holds a lesson for us all: curiosity is the key to craftsmanship.

Who we are is intrinsically connected to what we do and the things we build. So what does a lifetime of making things look like?

The Makers of Things – a short film collection by Anne Hollowday – documents the work and workshops of the Society for Model and Experimental Engineers, a sprawling organisation with members all over the world. Their common tools and methods mask a huge array of interests and skills, from experimental tinkerers to woodworkers and librarians, all brought together under the roof of their South London headquarters.
