History of bricolage, 2012, abstract 42ʼ05ʼʼ video,
Voice over by Pierre Giquel.

History of bricolage, 2012 video shows the dismantling of a budget jigging saw bought in an hardware store. Each component is sorted by category on the table. This very tool is kind of an icon of a postmodern and global DIY.

The voice over tells an history of crafting from the political approach it used to be to the nowadays middle class hobby it is.
