'What is the tool you cant't live without and what are the tools of the future'
Above is one of the questions that was posed to the Make:Shift 2014 presenter. It got me thinking.
I would have to say my hands are the most important tools to me. Without them i would not be able to experience materials on a tactile level; to experience their materiality, makeup and consistency. The fine motor skills of hand and eye coordination presents this dexterity in my hands which enables me to make; to hold, to pinch, to touch, to feel. For me there is nothing more versatile than the hand; i am able to make and physically experience sense of awareness through them.
Tools of the future i suspect will be a combination of the hand/voice/sound and digital technology.
