Edwina Portocarrero's studio/ MIT Media Lab's Fabrication Lab

For my day job, my coworker Anya and I have been going to all the interesting spaces of making and doing around MIT's campus for a new web series called Studio/Lab.  Our inspiration was this quote from RISD president (and MIT Alum) John Maeda:
