Made in Brooklyn: Artists, Hipsters, Makers, Gentrifiers. [Forthcoming Zero Books, June 2018] 

Made in Brooklyn is a belated critique of the Maker Movement: from its origins in the nineteenth century to its impact on labor and its entanglement in the neoliberal economic model of the tech industry. Part history, part ethnography, Made in Brooklyn provides a unified analysis of how the tech industry has infiltrated artistic practice and urban space.
