I’m curious about this show up at Yerba Buena, anybody seen it yet?

TechnoCRAFT:  Hackers, Modders, Fabbers, Tweakers and Design in the Age of Individuality

"TechnoCRAFT explores how the boundary between the role of the designer and the consumer is disappearing. Curated by acclaimed designer Yves Behar, the exhibition traces the current trend in design away from fixed objects toward open “design platforms” that invite people to participate in the creative process. Selected works span the spectrum from intentionally collaborative (such as platforms where individuals can customize their products) to outsider hacks, where “finished” products are adapted or modified by the user. Special attention is paid to the intersection of technology and craft that encourages an unprecedented level of user participation with profound implications for the future of design and experience making.”

I still think you’d end up throwing Grandma’s quilt over that chair though.
