A celebration of Glorianna Davenport’s three decade effort at MIT focused on documentary storytelling and technology, “Media Fabrics for Media Makers: Realizing an Expressive Landscape for Digital Dialogues” is a day-long symposium to be held on Friday, June 20, 2008 at the MIT Media Laboratory.
The morning sessions will show what has changed in terms of technology, methods and forms as we have rapidly moved to what Glorianna Davenport calls the Media Fabric. After lunch, three panels of Glorianna’s students will address the following topics: “Learning by Design” focused on issues related to the multidisciplinary nature of learning in the digital age; “Making Media” a discussion among founders of design firms that span physical space and media, and “Video games, the big screen and the Media Fabric” which speaks to the interaction of business interests and the entertainment field.
