Knotty Objects Summit @ MIT

July 15th 2015

The Knotty Object summit promises to be a paradise of anti-disciplinary delight. The event held at the renowned MIT Media Lab gathers designers, scientists, engineers and writers around the discussion of four complex and omnipresent objects and the stories they tell.

The knotty objects–brick, bitcoin, steak, and phone–are employed as lenses through which we examine the current state of our society as well as the crossovers between design and technology. Speakers include Paola Antonelli, Tony Dunne, Fiona Raby, Kevin Slavin, Neri Oxman, Isha Dahar, Revital Cohen, Daisy Ginsberg and our own Koert van Mensvoort.

Wednesday and Thursday, July 15-16, at the Boston ICA and Media Lab. Video streamed all over the planet.
