Machine Project x Common Field Guides

Common Field has partnered with Los Angeles-based founding member organization Machine Project to publish a series of toolkits that might be helpful for others in the field. In early 2018, Machine Project announced its closure after 15 years of experimentation. Machine hopes their groundbreaking work will inspire you to keep trying to get away with it all. They have put together 3 comprehensive tool kits that are available for FREE download here and on Machine Project's website. Check them out, and share them widely!
