- THE BELL TOWER
Please join us on Wednesday, February 24th at 7pm for a NestED talk with Alexis Hope, founder of FOLD and a designer and researcher based at the MIT Media Lab and the Center for Civic Media.
FOLD is an authoring and publishing platform for creating modular, multimedia stories. It allows writers to weave multimedia content around text to provide a unique reading experience that does not distract from the core story. For those with an appetite in the digital humanities, this platform makes it easy to get started. Using FOLD, authors can search for and add “context cards” to their stories. Context cards can contain videos, maps, tweets, music, interactive visualizations, and more.
Prior to joining the Media Lab, Hope worked on a multi-year project to design, build, and test a portable ultrasound machine for midwives in low-resource environments. This project included fieldwork and co-design with midwives, radiologists, and mothers in Kenya, Uganda, and Seattle.

NestED, the OWHL Makerspace’s speaker series, invites makers, educators, artists, and innovators to come speak at the Nest, demo their projects, and provide inspiration. All members of the Phillips Academy community – students, faculty, and staff – are invited to attend.
