Description/Abstract

Hedi Kyle, conservator (retired) at the American Philosophical Society in Philadelphia, PA. In this, the second lecture of the Brodsky Series, Hedi Kyle spoke about the development of preservation enclosures and innovative solutions for protecting the myriad of artifacts found in our memory institutions. Many of these enclosures were developed by Kyle herself and combine the stringent needs for safe "preservation environments" with playful origamic structures, something which has also made them very popular with book artists throughout the world.
