KARVT is owned by mac enthusiast Kurt Barbee. Kurt is someone who has always been a huge fan of technology and has been inspired by the DIY attitude of the indie rock, punk and gig-poster subcultures. Kurts interest in computers and art finally merged a couple years ago when he started his own laser engraving company, which specialized in collaborating with artists from all over the world to extend their work in the new, exciting medium of “laser engraving”.
because our mac protects our livelihoods. Whatever that may be. Career, hobby, leisure-whatever it is, it’s in our mac. Our mac takes on our personality and its hard drive supplements our memory. These pieces of hardware come together and create a partner who not only listens but makes things more convenient for our daily lives. We constantly put our personalities into our computers, why not put some of that person on the outside? Why not feed our macs superficial craving for attention? Why not show some personality on the outside of the computer? Lets face it, we love our macs. Plain and simple, we are cooler than the “other” laptop owners. Why not rub it in their face that they have plastic skins… and we have organic, durable, wooden ones.
