I usually just write about gardening and making. My fixation on these activities is rooted not just in “having a hobby,” but also as a push back against techno utopianism and consumerism. I just read this article by L.M. Sacasas and it deftly articulates many of my concerns. I’m going to take up with this issue at length in a later post, but I believe that craftwork and making are antidotes to the dominant techno-paradigm in which we live.
