my lovely j sent me this link, and i thought i'd share it with you all as well!
here's a great article from the NY Times about technology and crafts, showcasing Alison Lewis of http://iheartswitch.com and her amazing home.
the article showcases the interesting and intriguing electronic projects that she's added to an already cozy space, making it welcome you in more ways than just the traditional!
i'm always so intrigued by the melding of technology and craft/art. i've eyed her book, Switch Craft, multiple times, as well as lots of the projects shown on craft and make, but i've always been intimidated. as much as i enjoyed building little electrical thingies as a kid (remember using using a potato as a battery in grade school?), it's always seemed too technical for my right brained ways! one day i'd really like to break through that mental roadblock and play around a bit more.
for more information check out the article, and be sure to watch the photo slide show for more inspiration!
