Virtual Reality: Entropies

Some days, this local Etsian swings hammers and builds homes; others, he sews fabric scraps into remarkable quilts.

Seattleite Luke Haynes has always been intrigued by functional art. He studied architecture in college and worked in the field before opening his virtual shop, Entropies.

"I think there are a lot of similarities in the way I approach design in buildings and quilts," he explains. "Both have aesthetic problem-solving at their root and a spatial and functional driving force."

Though he’s passionate about architecture, he found he wasn’t all that interested in working in the field. "There is a lot to be said about making one’s own projects," he says. "And now I get to do that."

Haynes has been quilting for ten years—94 quilts and counting—and strives to blur the distinction between function and art. The slideshow shows the gray area that Haynes’ craft provides.
