an open source architectural beadwork project from Kate McKinnon and a worldwide team of innovators
Good morning! I plan to attempt to stream the lecture part of our visuals today live on our Facebook page and make a deeper video in the next few weeks that will include much more. Follow along today if you like (and if it works) but please don’t feel that you are missing anything if you don’t see the talk live.
Our presentation will only become richer in the next few weeks when it’s mixed with all of the images, video and amazement that came out of the last month of work at MIT.
One of the truly beautiful things about this project is that our connections are time-independent; in fact the more people who see an idea at different times, the happier it is in propagating, I think. And we have a lot of discovery to share. These visuals are mostly history, recent and ancient.
In the final cut of this talk, I’ll also include film of Joke van Biesen showing some of her larger pieces. Most of the work shown in these images is on display today at MIT – Building 34, Room 101, the large ground floor auditorium.
Tell your phone GPS “MIT Building 34” and enter on the Vassar Street side. It looks like this. Parking is tough around campus. I greatly prefer to park somewhere easy and Uber, train or bus to MIT.

And here is the video I will be discussing, shot by Ben Ged Low in our classroom last week:
