Learning a craft is to become undone in our relation to both the machine and the material. Crafts-machine-ship is the attempt to share our autonomy with the machine.

The loom is an early machine, a distinctly human construction; it is seen to be the start of automation and industrialization, seen to replace human hands with abstractions and mechanical movements.
