We enjoy sharing the research and ideas we’re exploring on this blog, but we’ve been trying to find other opportunities to share the things we’re interested in, especially with people who are not necessarily computational designers. Early in the summer, we approached the committee in charge of the Seattle Design Festival and asked if we could contribute something to the September event, though at the time we weren’t quite sure what that something was.
