Lorrie Faith Cranor: Computers, Quilts, & Privacy

Join us in the STUDIO on Friday, November 1 from 12:30-1:30pm for a talk by quilt artist and STUDIO Fellow Lorrie Faith Cranor.

Cranor is an Associate Professor of Computer Science and of Engineering and Public Policy at Carnegie Mellon University where she is director of the CyLab Usable Privacy and Security Laboratory (CUPS) and co-director of the MSIT-Privacy Engineering masters program. During the 2012-2013 academic year she spent her sabbatical as a fellow at the STUDIO, where she worked on fiber arts projects that combine her interests in privacy and security, quilting, and computers. In this talk she will discuss these interests and how she combined them during her sabbatical.

You can view some of Lorrie’s quilts online at http://lorrie.cranor.org/quilts/. Lorrie’s quilts will also be on exhibit at the Frame Gallery on the Carnegie Mellon campus October 25-November 3, 2013.
