Makers As Escapists

“Would it be fair to see this as an escape plan: a possible solution for any captive maker? Escapism is often used to describe cowardice. As discussed earlier, everyday life activities – not those associated with work but those Bob Black would call playful practices – can become very lucrative for industries that take them to extreme levels. This market exists because of the tendency of human beings to distract themselves in reaction to the heaviness of working life. To some, escapism is associated with the inability or unwillingness to connect meaningfully to the world.” (Excerpt from Makers As Escapists)
