From the other side of the world
Some Georgetown art students just got back from spending 2 weeks in japan taking part in the international Karakuri Workshop. A workshop designed to teach the history and basic methods of karakuri making. Karakuri are handmade performative dolls, ranging from basic puppets to the beginnings of autonomous robotics. So if you happen to run into Liz, Allen, Megan Sauter (pictured above), Joel Darland, or Stephanie Martin, go ahead and ask them what they did this summer.
