was held at the end of March 2012. I had a really great time there, and, in addition to meeting lots of amazing people, learning a bunch of cool things, and seeing some astounding close up magic, also had the opportunity to put together a bunch of fun sculptures. Here are the three biggest projects that I contributed to.
are a super cool building toy made by my friend Mike Woods and his company E&M Labs. We made these nifty things from them at my birthday party. What will you make?
was an exercise in building an Incan rope bridge in as traditional a manner as possible. My classmates and I spent much of our Spring 2007 term twisting twine into two-ply cords and cords into thick ropes. Fortunately, the end result was beautiful and well worth it. It was also covered pretty thoroughly by the press. The MIT spotlight on it, with links to various articles about our bridge, can be seen here: http://www.mit.edu/spotlight/inca-bridge/

was built by Paul Csonka, Kseniya Charova, Cameron Schaeffer, Jane Huang, and me in April 2011. The photos here were taken by Paul Csonka and Lewis Hom.
My friend Zach Abel has come up with an impressive assortment of binder clip sculptures. I love the idea of taking everyday objects and turning them into amazing things, so I felt compelled to try making some of my own.
