DCG Forum welcomes professor Leah Buechley, who will discuss “Technology, Material, and Culture.” In professor Buechley’s words: “This talk will describe ways that my students and I blend technology with a wide variety of materials in the research group I direct at the MIT Media Lab. I’ll explain and demonstrate how electronics and computation can be combined with paper, paint, fabric, and wood and discuss how working with technology as a craft material can change technology, design, and art cultures in powerful and surprising ways.”
When: Friday 04 March, 6:00 PM
Where: MIT 9-250
The talk will be followed by an open discussion moderated by DCG PhD member Felecia Davis. (Thank you Felecia for organizing this talk).
