The Making of Maker Culture
Examining rise of DIY culture around the world, MakerCulture: Taking Things into Our Own Hands is a 12-part report that looks at everything from science-based projects straight out of Star Trek to how hand-made has launched new forms of political resistance and positive, effective change in communities.
Even if you’re not craftily-inclined, the series is definitely worth taking a glance at, if only to be inspired to play with your food and learn to make a burnt Granny Smith apple finger ring.
And on a related note, have you seen the Handmade Nation documentary or read Faythe Levine‘s book of the same name? I can’t say enough good things about the documentary. It’s fun, inspiring, and very thought-provoking.
