an open source architectural beadwork project from Kate McKinnon and a worldwide team of innovators
We had a nice time yesterday at MIT, thank you to all of you who came to campus on such a cold day. Big thanks to Erik and Martin Demaine and to MIT for having us back.
Our video will take a few hours of fiddling before it appears on YouTube. Cameras, computers, internets… it’s really a miracle that they all work at all. It’s astonishing what humans have jigged up in a small amount of time. Spaceflight, climate crises. Crazed beadwork!
For our Feb 1 closing lecture (which will be a big event) we’ll do Go Live sessions on Facebook and YouTube, in addition to having it professionally filmed by MIT AV, hopefully for inclusion in their archive.

Yesterday’s presentation is summarized entirely in these slides, so please enjoy the talk as a PDF for now, and we’ll get the Live Action version up as soon as we can today. You can page through the PDF just like a 67-page book.
It was nice to review the entire span of the work. The slideshow features pieces from the history of the project, some of which I hadn’t thought about in a long time. In addition to the pieces I show in the slides, with me in person and on exhibit I had work from Sarah Toussaint, Ingrid Wangsvik, Lia Melia, Deb Schwartz, Daria Tittenberger, Joy Davison (Jay Dee), Joke van Biesen, Susannah Thomson, Pat Verrier, Karen Westcott, and many other members of our team and extended community.
