Speaker Kari Love: "Don’t Put a Label on It: Making as a Mindset"

February 10, 2017
Kari Love

ITS FACULTY LUNCH & LEARNING TECHNOLOGY SERIES, with support from the "Our Shared Humanities" grant to Union College by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation

Small moments. Big ideas. Making connections. 

While interdisciplinary teams are known to increase likelihood of game-changing technologies, the typical reaction to Kari Love's non-linear pathways through Broadway costuming, puppet building, space suits and soft robotics is still surprise. This talk gets past the initial surprise about where innovation might come from, to strategies for encouraging the cross-pollination of ideas and laying foundations for collaboration. Combines personal stories from a career of unplanned outcomes, with technical justification for a hands-on approach to soft robotics and other emerging technology.
See attached flyer for more information.

Time: 12:55 - 1:45pm 

Location: Visual Arts 204

Food will be provided.

About the speaker:
Ms. Kari Love is an administrator and a soft roboticist for Super-Releaser, a Brooklyn-based soft robotics R&D consultancy. She worked with Final Frontier Design, a commercial space suit company, from 2013-2016 as Lead Patternmaker and Fabricator. In that role Ms. Love worked as a technical expert on 3 NASA SBIR contracts, a Space Act Agreement, and a contract on Mechanical Counter-Pressure gloves. She also served as a Test Director for hardware validation in parabolic flight conducted with NRC-Canda. Prior to her career in commercial space tech, Ms. Love developed costumes for Broadway for more than a decade, including her Spider-Man:Turn Off The Dark costume which was inducted into the Smithsonian collection. Professional puppet building and puppet costuming, such as her work at The Jim Henson Company, have integrated into her interdisciplinary approach to problem solving, She was also a bridesmaid on the first documented weightless wedding in parabolic flight, and is a member of the hackerspace NYC Resistor.
