Studio/Lab: Media Lab Fabrication Laboratory

“We know that the scientist’s laboratory and the artist’s studio are two of the last places reserved for open-ended inquiry, for failure to be a welcome part of the process, for learning to occur by a continuous feedback loop between thinking and doing.” -John Maeda

This week for Studio/Lab, a new series featuring a glimpse into all the interesting spaces of making and doing around the MIT campus, we’re spotlighting the MIT Media Lab’s Fabrication Lab. Edwina Portocarrero, a doctoral student in the Media Lab’s Object Based Media Group, kindly gave us a tour of both the lab and her personal workspace. With a background in set design, Portocarrero designs hybrid physical/digital objects and systems for play, education and performance, blending the evocative and intimate qualities of objects and object interaction with the affordances of digital systems.
