This weeks “confusing” lecture was in essence a bunch of the new age of craft (digital craft) and since we have been “crafted” to overthink, we did just that, overthought the meaning the content, not taking into account that the medium is the message? The drastic innovation of craft is one of flexible nature, virtually we can be, do or make anything we desire and often very unconsciously (hint:our major project/DA), we are all crafting online?!
The process has everything to do with why it is considered a craft. An example of this would be Hatsune Miku, she is the result (or rather an ongoing digital craft process). Hatsune Miku herself started as a sketch, this is previously where the craft was done. The process of creating a digital craft e.g. Hatsune Miku, incorporates prototyping by not only one original creator but all habitants of cyberspace. Digital crafts make for infinite processes, they require experimentation and the introduction new forms of art (Gitch Art), anything you create you craft.Continuous crafting calls for communication of a message but more is gained from the process then the result, that is why the internet and digital craft is infinite. I think???
My VERY basic attempt at glitch art:
