Building an idea

Caleb sent me this great image the other day. no credit sorry, I did some research and came up short. I feel like its a piece that I would make....."goofball tech". But it does sort of explain an idea that I am working on; that technology and handcraft are not opposites but 'the means to an end". Craft is the midwife to technology?

Anne Wilson and Joan Livingstone curated this show just after I finished grad school at SAIC. They talk about technology and craft in the essay (related to textiles in particular).

Always enjoy checking in!
