Manufractured: the conspicuous transformation of everyday objects
This volume reveals a major trend taking place today in visual and material culture the radical appropriation of consumer goods as raw material for art- and object-making. A growing number of artists, craftspeople, and designers are realigning traditional craft practices with already manufactured objects and materials to marry the uniquely handmade with the uniformly mass-produced. Published to coincide with a show at the Museum of Contemporary Craft in Portland, Oregon, Manuf actured offers an arresting look at the new crossover of craft, art, and design, and an exciting new cultural genre.
