It’s Art & Craft week at TTBOOK, but we’re not gluing macaroni to cardboard.
From the halls of London’s Victoria and Albert Museum, to MIT's Center for Bits and Atoms; from a craft studio on the coast of Maine, to "outsider artists" at the Venice Biennale... we’re looking at what we make, why it matters, and how it’s shaping our future.
Craft is all about handmade, right? Not any more. At one of the country's most well-respected craft schools, the pound of hammers and hum of the potter’s wheel is harmonizing with the zap of laser cutters and whir of microprocessors.
Haystack Mountain School of Crafts is partnering with MIT's Center for Bits and Atoms to forge new means of making.
