Week 5 comments – Michael Glen

Hello, I’m a maker, designer, artist, learner


Identity can be complex, titles such as craftsperson, coder, educator and engineer seem to imply a professional identity that I wouldn’t identify with. Whereas maker, learner, gamer, storyteller seem more descriptive of activities on would enjoy doing. Thus I’m a maker if I like to make, but not a craftsperson if I like to craft.


My favorite tool is a smoke machine! Remarkably versatile when combined with lights to create all sorts of atmospheres.
I enjoyed the craft learning exercise, I think it reinforced the community aspects of traditional craft learning using shared knowledge. Which is something different and important than the same knowledge conveyed via a youtube video.
