The Hand and the Glove... ramblings about making.

The Tool at Hand

I have been invited by Ethan Lasser of the Chipstone Foundation to take part in a forthcoming exhibition, The Tool at Hand, to be held in the Milwaukee Art Museum later this year.
To take part, the invitees have been asked to produce an object using one tool and to produce a short video describing the process and our relationship with the tool.
I chose my MacBook Pro, the thing that I'm using right now to write this.

As I'm sure you're aware if you have followed my occasional ramblings over the past few years my interest is how the skills that I developed as a potter can be transferred to the world of digital technology, so Ethan's offer was definitely not to be missed.

Here's the video:

I have tried to keep it as simple as possible, I'm not sure how well it has communicated my relationship with my MacBook so any thoughts would be appreciated.
