“In its old sense the verb 'bricoler' applied to ball games and billiards, to hunting, shooting and riding. It was however always used with reference to some extraneous movement: a ball rebounding, a dog straying or a horse swerving from its direct course to avoid an obstacle. And in our own time the 'bricoleur' is still someone who works with his hands and uses devious means compared to those of a craftsman."
"The 'bricoleur' also [...] 'speaks' not only with things ... but also through the medium of things."
~ Claude Levi-Strauss, The Savage Mind
