Product Description

Success and Failure delves into the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences collection to find examples of research, design and development that have led to unconventional outcomes, disappointments, challenges and triumphs. Acclaimed Australian writers Bruce Pascoe and Delia Falconer as well as Museum authors have contributed essays sparked by more than 100 collection objects, along with archival material providing insight into the processes behind significant developments. Exploring the origins of porcelain and board games, and innovation in engineering, architecture and design, agriculture, medicine, weapons, sound technology, women's clothing and robotics to name a few, this publication reveals how, surprisingly, nearly every story of success also speaks of failure.
