While we wait for the Center Stage video archives to go up, here’s a little treat from the ImageThink “graphic facilitation” team who were creating simul-illustrato-casts of the Maker Faire Center Stage talks on poster board: Jay Silver’s “The World Is a Construction Kit” Talk.
Here’s the talk description:
Here’s a secret, the real construction kit doesn’t come in a box. The real construction kit is the world all around you (and even your own self). Are bananas piano keys? Is a water faucet a theremin? What can we learn from Andy Goldsworthy when he uses icicles like Legos? I’m doing research with MIT, JoyLabz, and Intel to try to find out how people can see the world as changeable, and see themselves as the changers.
