Craft is how I explore what it means to be human. Tool building and use are an integral part of how we have evolved as animals, evolved to a point where many of us deny that we ARE animals. This causes strife, repression, and separation from the world we exist in. We don’t know how to regulate our instincts. We don’t know how to interact with other animals within our ecosystem… but we are still animals. What happens when we reconnect to our animal selves? What is lost within our society? Our history? What could be gained in our future?
