Stitchories, by Katherine Wakid from the California College of the Arts in San Francisco, “is a digital quilt—a cotton blanket with a built-in computer that can upload photos and record spoken narratives—combines high technology and cozy craft to encourage communication between teens and their elders.”
While I think people may be wrong in assuming that the “greatest generation” and young people wont coonect via the communication metaphors of today, just look at geriatric1927 on You Tube, I do appreciate people embedding these metaphors into different forms. Forms that may allow communication more comfortable and mobile! From ID Online.
