Despite the rapid growth and advancement of technology, there’s a current trend now within the creative community placing an importance on the hand made object. It can be seen more clearly in the “Do it yourself” movement. Otherwise known as DIY. What I find most interesting about DIY projects and ideas is that it became popular through technology despite their focus on returning to the uniqueness that comes from making things yourself. Countless numbers of blogs on how to cook, craft, and produce art have inspired many to look at creativity in a new light. In many ways, the DIY movement has allowed for a breather from products being mechanically produced, giving consumers alternative products to buy. Sites like Etsy and even companies such as Urban outfitters and Anthropology pride themselves in producing products that are personalized. This obsession with having “one of a kind” objects has become more cherished since the mass produced product has been on the forefront for so long. Most importantly, DIY sites has created room for a new community of makers to interact and feed off each others ideas and creativity.
