Making

In making things, we make the world, we also remake ourselves. Artefacts are active and shape the world. Our world is unthinkable without objects. What would we be without objects? To make or craft is to remake the world, give it meaning whether the object is functional or not. The maker gives his/her own personal shape to the world by making objects.
