DO IT YOURSELF (DIY)
DO-IT-YOURSELF (DIY)




Do it yourself (DIY) is a term used to describe building, modifying,
or repairing of something without the aid of experts or professionals.
The phrase "do it yourself" came into common usage in the 1950s in
reference to home improvement projects which people might choose to
complete independently.

DIY is related to the Arts and Crafts movement, in that it offers an
alternative to modern consumer culture's emphasis on relying on others
to satisfy needs.

The DIY movement is a re-introduction (often to urban and suburban dwellers)
of the old pattern of personal involvement and use of skills in upkeep of a
house or apartment, making clothes; maintenance of cars, computers, websites;
or any material aspect of living.



Subculture


The terms "DIY" and "do-it-yourself" are also used to describe:

DIY ETHIC




DIY ethic refers to the ethic of self-sufficiency through completing tasks
without the aid of a paid expert. Literally meaning "do it yourself," the
DIY ethic promotes the idea that anyone is capable of performing a variety
of tasks rather than relying on paid specialists. The DIY ethic requires
that the adherent seeks out the knowledge required to complete a given task.
The term can refer to a variety of disciplines, including home improvement,
first aid or creative works.
