Welcome to the projects page!
Here is where you’ll find links to all our current, completed, and back burner projects, as well as those thar have been permanently or indefinitely.
The current primary focus of Anthrospin is a book entitled Lost & Foundry: Amos Chafee Barstow and Rhode Island’s Stove Industry. It roughly traces the life of Amos Barstow while establishing the cultural world into which he was born, as well as the changes in the city of Providence as he developed his life’s work in the Barstow Stove Company.
Much of this project is in scattered notes in notebooks, my computer, my Barstow focused Facebook group, my google docs account, and my external hard drive. An outline of the foundry and link to the Facebook group on the Barstow Stove Company page.
If you’ve followed Anthrospin for any length of time, you know that one of the most complex and ambitious projects we have undertaken is Scrimshaw, which explores the origins of industrial whaling and it’s impact on the world through expansion of westernization, the displacement of indigenous peoples, and the collapse of marine ecosystems.
